2018 Holiday Party & Annual Awards

Oley Valley High School volunteers

Littles, Bigs, family, and friends of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County, PA — not to mention Santa & Mrs. Claus — gathered last night for the 2018 Annual Holiday Party.  The families enjoyed pizza & other snacks and refreshments; games; a craft courtesy Virginia of VA Productions; Holiday music from DJ Cool Raul.  We would like to thank the four companies who provided presents for the Littles:  Performance Toyota, Loomis, VF Outlet, and C & S Wholesale Grocers.  Thanks also to “Santa’s Helpers” (five great students from Oley Valley High School).
