To the Editor:

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped out at the Sycamore Park District's Cookies with Santa event this past weekend.

The event attracted more than 545 people. A great deal of toys and food was donated as well.  A huge thanks goes to the Sycamore Lions Club for its help with supplying the hot chocolate and cookies.

This event began more than 14 years ago and is still as popular as ever. Thanks to Kishwaukee Community Hospital for its donation of photo frames and funds for the craft supplies. Another thank you to all the park district staff members who helped out at the event. This event is a big undertaking and requires effort from all.

And, finally, thanks to all the families who came out to the event and made this so successful.
