2022 Children’s Christmas Party

The New Mexico Combined Club’s Annual Children’s Christmas Party was a huge success this year! Each year the Club provide a Christmas party and gifts for children from three Children’s Homes. Our dedicated team consisted of 26 volunteers who spent an incredible 353 hours shopping, wrapping, baking, decorating and doing whatever was needed. As a result, they were able to give 98 kids ranging in age from 6 months to 19 years a Christmas to remember. Every child got at least two gifts and a bag stuffed with candy, fruit and a Christmas ornament. The party, held at the Eagles Lodge was a great time. Our volunteers cooked and served 250 hamburgers!! Tons of cookies were baked and donated. Santa Claus was there of course, with extra gifts and goodies for all of the kids who were able to attend.


2020 Children’s Christmas Party
This year we could not have a party, so we did gifts instead. For each child about $50 was spent from grants, club funds and donations. Each child got a hand decorated ornament, candy and present(s). The 46 children at the Christian Children’s Home, Baptist Home and Hope Children’s Center will be very happy to be remembered this Christmas.

Holiday Ornaments for children’s Christmas Party

These ornaments were made for the goody bags for the children’s Christmas party. Gary and Teresa Blair have been making them for the last 8 years. The reindeer and snowman were made from fragrance bags and the angel was out of paperclips. The snowflakes are clothespins and the trees are made from felt and Christmas material. This year was the slides where they used 2 sizes of Popsicle sticks. Last year we did golf balls, painted reindeer, snow snowmen, and Santa.
