Then Kurt and I went over to Mariners to meet our life group.
We carpooled to CAMP PENDLETON!
Then we were given our assignment and started to decorate. We decorated the Santa Claus/presents room. This is where the kids would line up later to see SANTA and receive a present.
There are SO MANY Marines at Camp Pendleton. Soooo soososososososos many. This is certainly not the only Christmas party for the Marines and their families. I know how many people there were at our party JUST to decorate and there were just as many during and after the party. I hope that the Marines and their families could feel our support through a few hours of party prep. With anything I am involved in, I always aim to leave “things” better than I found it. I know we accomplished that with this room. It went from “dance/workout” room to Santa’s little Camp Pendleton office. We didn’t even take any pictures of the other areas of the actual party… But it was a huge place they expected 250+ families.
