Healthy Notions kicked off the 2010 Joy for the Holidays Christmas Party and Bookfair at Barnes & Noble (Mansell Crossing Shopping Ctr) in Alpharetta on Saturday, Nov 27th. Proceeds fund Healthy Notion’s PROJECT NEED TO READ literacy program. PROJECT NEED TO READ integrates reading, music, drama and art to engage elementary age children and helps develop literacy skills.
The event included reading of favorite Christmas stories, a visit from Santa, creation of ornaments and bookmarks by the kids who attended. The Atlanta Academy (Roswell GA) Gladiator Performers, Mary Claire F.(soloist) and Tim Y. (violist) graced the crowd with awesome musical performances. Special thanks to the wonderful volunteers that came out to support and help from our community, Centennial High School volunteers and our sponsors: Barnes & Noble (Alpharetta GA), Oh Sugar! (Roswell GA), and Publix Supermarket for helping Healthy Notions spread Joy for the Holidays!
