AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage and First Lady Ann M. LePage will host Military Families for a Christmas Party at the Blaine House on Saturday, December 17, 2016 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Children and their families will 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 who wishes 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.
