STERLING — Residents of Sterling and the surrounding area are invited to a Holiday Open House at Sterling Village, 204 W. Washington.

The special event is scheduled for 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, when Santa will pay a visit. A Christmas Giving Tree also will be available.

“We will serve delicious holiday refreshments and welcome people of all ages,” said Lisa Valentine, Sterling Village community liaison. “And Santa is eager to make his appearance. He will visit with participants and be available for photos.”

In addition, tours of the long-term-care residence will be available on request.

“We hope that our guests will take special note of the Christmas Giving Tree,” Valentine commented. “We encourage visitors to take a giving tag from the tree and become a Secret Santa to one of our elders. It is the perfect way to celebrate the true meaning of the season.

“It is also an opportunity to mingle with our staff and other members of the community in caring fellowship. We hope the community can share the joy of Christmas with their friends and neighbors at our open house.”

Those who plan to attend are asked to RSVP by Friday, Dec. 13. Valentine can be reached by calling 620-273-4077.
