Local youth brighten Christmas for others

submitted to EFP

  Eleven-year-old Essex resident, Lauren Armstrong, and her nine-year old friend, Molly Diemer, were busy trying to help make Christmas a little bit better for area seniors leading up to the holiday season.

  The girls used their creative talents to make homemade greeting cards for 24 seniors, and then personally delivered them to Iler Lodge, just in time for the holidays.

  Tracy Armstrong, Lauren’s mom, said some of the seniors noted the card they received was their first Christmas card this year.

  “The smiles on their faces was a priceless experience for her and her friend,” Tracey said.

  Lauren then completed her Turkey Basket Drive project. Since last Christmas, she has wanted to provide a nice Christmas dinner for area families facing economic hardships.

  In perusing her goal, Lauren helped buy, pack, and distribute Christmas dinner to 10 families in Essex.
