The 2017 Homestead Holiday Party was a huge success! The event was filled with TV giveaways, CAVS tickets, Ipads and even a special appearance by Santa himself. Each year the party continues to grow and the committee really outdid themselves this year. As always Majid brought some of his wife’s delicious treats! “I came for the cake” Guy Purington said as he entered the party. We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday!
