|New Cookies, Carols and Cocoa Holiday Party set at Matt Ross Community Center on Dec. 19|
Get in the holiday spirit while listening to traditional favorite holiday songs during a new special event being planned in mid-December by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This holiday party is called Cookies, Carols and Cocoa and will take place beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 19, at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty St., Overland Park. Music will be provided by the Side by Side Experience, a group of easy-going singers and dancers, whose leader, Donna Bolen, was recognized in 2016 by the Kansas Recreation and Park Association as a Distinguished Volunteer for her more than 21 years of work with this group.
