Gingerbread House Decorating Party at E4E2

 

Families enjoyed an evening together making memories during E4E2’s Gingerbread House Decorating Party Dec. 13 at the E4E2 Center located at 2320 Avenue K. 

The event featured everything to decorate gingerbread houses for each family member as students served snacks and chocolate milk. 

E4E2 board member, supporter and volunteer Mark Thorton hosted story-time, reading a story about the “Gingerbread Man” as children filled the room listening intently with family members. 

“We had such a great response from the community and families were able to spend quality time together tonight,” said E4E2 Founder and Director Priscilla Robinson.

“That was our goal and we accomplished it; our students worked so hard to put this event together and I am very proud of their efforts to do something for the community.

“I wanted them to see what a difference it can make to be able to help families create memories together and watch the children enjoy the precious moments with their loved ones without electronics like phones or television as a distraction,” said Robinson. “They constructed all the gingerbread houses ahead of time to allow families to concentrate on decorating them, and also decorated our E4E2 facility to celebrate the festive holiday season. My students worked hard all week making a gingerbread house as a huge display at the entrance complete with lights; It was just a joy to watch the children have the undivided attention of their parents, grandparents, siblings and loved ones who attended with them.” 

E4E2 continues to need school supplies for the program’s upcoming spring semester. If you would like to donate supplies, make a monetary donation towards the purchase of supplies for the upcoming academic year, or would like more information about the E4E2 Adult Education program, contact Priscilla Robinson Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 12 noon at (979) 476-3140.
