In addition to the information, guests that attend the open house will have the opportunity to have a professional holiday family photo taken and printed for free. “Since we have opportunities for the entire family, we also wanted a way to say thank you to those families that come. Especially with the upcoming holidays, we thought the free family photo would be something nice for families to walk away with in addition to information about upcoming programs,” said Jones.
