The Governor and First Lady invite children of military families to the Blaine House for a Christmas celebration

AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage and First Lady Ann M. LePage will host Military Families for a Christmas Party at the Blaine House from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 5, 2015.

Children and their families of Maine’s military service members are invited to enjoy Christmas cookies and hot cocoa with the Governor and First Lady and with special guests, Santa and Mrs. Claus.

“Maine’s military service members, and their families, make tremendous sacrifices on behalf of all of us,” said Mrs. LePage. “Many children are faced with the difficult task of a parent leaving home for deployment and being gone over the holidays. This is an opportunity for the Governor and me to show how much we sincerely appreciate their sacrifices while spending time together enjoying some Christmas cheer.”

Any military family wishing to attend should contact the Maine Army National Guard’s State Family Program to register either online at www.jointservicessupport.org or by calling the Child and Youth Specialist at 207-430-5773.
