On Friday, December 8th F.E.A.T. of Chattanooga will celebrate the holidays with a FEAT Family Holiday get-together. This gathering for the entire family will occur at Bayside Baptist Church on Highway 58 North from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm. This location has worked very well in the past years because each “step” of the party takes place in several different rooms in order to help alleviate over-stimulation for our children. There will be pictures with Santa, holiday videos and music, crafts, gifts, cards and ornaments for the kids to make. Bring your holiday food and any serving pieces needed. The whole family is invited.
