The annual Christmas party at the Fox Valley Community Center in Sandwich not only featured a surprise visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, but also the Sandwich Police Cadets and Sandwich Police Benevolent Association.

The two groups treated the more than 100 attendees to lunch and entertainment. Singer Billy Sullivan was the featured performer.

Voluntary Action Center, in partnership with Fox Valley Older Adult Services, hosts a daily congregate meal at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. There is a suggested $4 donation for the daily lunch and a $6 suggested donation for special lunch parties. All donations are anonymous. No one is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. VAC also provides transportation in partnership with FVOAS out of their offices at the FVCC.

Through their partnership, FVOAS and VAC offer residents of DeKalb, Kane, Kendall and LaSalle counties active adult activities at the senior center, adult day service and home services, including 24/7 private home services.
