Ipswich High School Interact Press Release
Join us for a day of holiday festivities and cheer!  Greet Santa as he arrives at Ipswich Town Wharf.  Sing carols with Buddy the Elf as we await Santa’s arrival!  Jingle bells will be available for purchase.  Jingle your bells and follow our honored guest and Buddy the Elf on a festive “Jingle Bell Walk” to the Ipswich Town Hall at 45 Green Street.  Keep a sharp eye out for the Grinch!

Once Santa arrives at Town Hall, he will receive children 11 and under while a string quartet entertains. Parents are urged to bring a camera!  Following their visit with Santa, the children can have their faces painted, play festive games, and create holiday crafts.  Ipswich-Rowley Rotarians will assist by serving hot dogs, hot cocoa, and more in the COA cafeteria.

Tickets will be available for purchase to enjoy delicious food, face painting, and crafts.  There will be free games to play as well.  Raffles for Christmas trees, a new iPad and apple pencil, and local business baskets will also be up for grabs!

Attendees are encouraged to bring unwrapped gifts fit for a child to support the Marines in their organization, Toys for Tots!  Proceeds from the Jingle Bell Walk will be donated to charitable activities and Interact Club activities.

Ipswich Interact is a high school group that prioritizes youth leadership and follows the Rotary model of "Service Sbove Self."  This event is a great way to connect high schoolers with younger children!
