Cottage Hospital welcomed over 500 people on Dec. 17 for the 3rd Annual Holiday Open House. Here, Julia Canelas, an elf helper, assists a young boy with his ornament making. Maryanne Aldrich, Community Relations Director said, "We were pleasantly overwhelmed by the wonderful response from our community for our open house. We had anticipated having about 100 children come to the event, and within 15 minutes, we realized that number could be close to triple. We distributed over 250 toys, decorated 200 cookies and made 300 ornaments throughput the two hour time period. The night's true success was the patience of the many children as they awaited for their special moments with Santa, which were captured courtesy of Young's Photography."
