Fortress Christmas Party

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! On Friday, December 12th, Fortress YDC hosted our annual Christmas dinner for our wonderful kiddos and their families. We had over 120 people attend, our biggest event this year! The kids set to work on making and decorating popsicle stick christmas tree ornaments, a perennial favorite. Then everyone was treated to a dinner of spicy Texas chili, homemade cornbread and a hot chocolate bar with every topping imaginable, all served with a smile by the lovely volunteers from the Junior League of Fort Worth. After dinner, families worked together to make gingerbread houses with graham crackers, icing, and a little engineering ingenuity. The results weren’t all what you might call “perfect,” but they were all perfectly tasty! At the end of the night, a few lucky attendees won raffle drawings for gift cards, and all of the adults went home with a gift - a cookbook designed for those on a budget. The cookbook is called "Good and Cheap," and the copies were generously donated by the author herself, Leanne Brown. It was a wonderful evening with friends and family and a festive way to end the year. Fortress YDC will be closed starting Thursday, December 18th and will re-open in January when school starts again. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and blessings for a wonderful 2015!
