Sedalia Kiwanis Bringing Santa to Sedalia to Support Down Syndrome Research
Tis the season; the season for Santa! I know that a lot of you have some fond memories and traditions that good ol’ St Nick has been incredibly involved in this time of year. Santa has always been a symbol of giving and helping out others, and believe me when I say that he practices what he preaches. The Kiwanis Club has been in contact with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and they’ve agreed to help a local guy, George Bain, with a fundraiser. It’s going to be at 2701 Station Avenue and they’re having it to help people with Down Syndrome. George and the gang are going to be doing a big light show with music, and they’ve asked Santa to meet and greet our kids. I heard through the grapevine that Mrs Claus will be passing out candy canes to everybody.
Down syndrome results when one of three types of abnormal cell division involving chromosome 21 occurs. All three cell division abnormalities result in extra genetic material from chromosome 21, which is responsible for the characteristic features and developmental problems of Down syndrome.
Don’t miss out on this great chance to get to see some fun displays, talk to Santa, and help out our local folks with Down Syndrome. It’s on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and you know the Clauses are going to be having some fun.
