Memory-making Activities include a Trio of Ozark Mountain Christmas Cheer:  Adopt-A-Senior, Flashlight Candy Cane Hunt & Breakfast with Santa!  

(BRANSON, Mo, 11/15/23) – Ignite your Ozark Mountain Christmas spark with family fun activities including adopting a local senior citizen for Christmas, a Flashlight Candy Cane Hunt and Breakfast with Santa! Register now for these events as the holidays are quickly approaching – and even the most Scrooge-like among us need a dose of Christmas spirit.  


Help bring holiday fun to local seniors during this important time of year. Many elderly often feel blue missing loved ones gone long ago or once-bright cheer of Christmases past. If you are interested in sharing joy, the Branson Parks & Recreation Department is teaming up with the ‘SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging’ to provide gifts, appreciation, and well wishes to Branson area senior citizens.  You can Adopt-A-Senior by picking up a wish list from the Branson Community Center or Branson RecPlex starting November 20, 2023. You can also request a wish list by emailing Community Center Coordinator Traci Burrow at tburrow@bransonmo.govGifts should be returned to the Branson RecPlex or Branson Community Center no later than Monday, December 11, 2023.
