Learning for Life Program Brings Christmas Cheer

The Learning for Life program, through Burgess Health Center, held a group meeting at the Onawa Public Library on December 17, 2019. Each child was able to make a Christmas ornament and color a picture to take home and hang up. Santa attended this event as well! Each child had an opportunity to let Santa know what he/she wanted for Christmas. Santa was excited to talk with all of the children and encouraged them to sing Christmas songs to help bring the Christmas cheer.

Learning for Life (LFL) is a free home visiting program for families with children under five years of age and for expectant mothers.
