Holiday C.A.P. "Crafts" A Warm Family Moment

Holiday C.A.P. "Crafts" A Warm Family Moment

Moms and Dads can share a fun-filled Saturday morning with a son or daughter as they create a decorative "holiday sleigh" during a family crafts project, sponsored by the Town of Hempstead. According to Supervisor Kate Murray, the popular C.A.P. (Children and Parents) Program has scheduled its holiday project for Saturday, December 13, from 10:30 to 12:30 p.m. at Averill Blvd. Park, Elmont; Baldwin Park, Baldwin Harbor; Levittown Hall, Hicksville and Harold Walker Park, Lakeview.

"The C.A.P. Program enables family members to combine talent and enthusiasm in the creation of a beautiful household decoration," explained Supervisor Murray. "What better way to spend a Saturday morning than by sharing quality time with a son or daughter as you make a holiday display piece you can both be proud of?"

The upcoming C.A.P. program is open to Town of Hempstead youngsters between the ages of 5 and 12. C.A.P. participants will use a variety of attractive and unique craft items to construct a beautiful holiday sleigh. Arts and crafts instructors from the Department of Parks and Recreation will guide parents and children through the project.

The following park facilities will host a December 13th C.A.P. program: AVERILL BLVD. PARK, 145 Averill Blvd. Elmont; BALDWIN PARK, 3232 South Grand Avenue, Baldwin Harbor; LEVITTOWN HALL, Levittown Parkway, Hicksville; and HAROLD WALKER PARK, 1085 Woodfield Road, Lakeview.

To register for the park of your choice, call the Town of Hempstead Parks Department at 292-9000, ext. 256, beginning Monday, December 5 at 9:30 a.m. Phone registration continues until each park fills a 30-child limit.

A $7 registration fee will be charged per project. A check or money order made payable to the Town of Hempstead will be collected on the day of the program.

"Each C.A.P. session affords a morning's worth of family fun and creative excitement," explained Councilman Anthony Santino. "Parents and children are invited to share a special moment together as they create a beautiful holiday showpiece."

For additional C.A.P. information call the Department of Parks and Recreation at 292-9000, extension 256, or visit the town web site at
