in Features/Multimedia by

To begin ringing in the holiday cheer, Heritage students participated in the city of Plantation’s Light Up City Hall Holiday Celebration Dec. 3. 

A performance from the Heritage Tri-M Music Honor Society kicked off the night, followed by performances from the Heritage Combined Elementary Choir, Plantation Chamber Orchestra and Choir and Our Savior Lutheran’s Singing Saints. 

Sponsored by Baptist Health and the City’s Women’s club, the event included many fun and free children’s activities, including Selfies with Santa, an outdoor screening of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” arts and crafts, a snowman craft-making contest, cookie decorating and even hot chocolate. Many vendors came to sell their homemade treats and goods as well. 

Additionally, the Plantation Police Department gave out free stuffed animals to the children at the event.  Community Engagement Officer Chris Palmieri stated, “We love giving back to the community, whether it’s through donations or sponsored. We all do our part to help our community grow and help these kids.”

Emma, a current sophomore at American Heritage, is extremely excited to be joining the Patriot Post Staff this year! As an active reader and writer, she is often found scribbling away in a notebook or devouring a novel. Outside of newspaper, she is an active member of Science Research, Model UN, Science Olympiad, Key Club, and much more. In her rare free time, you can find her watching musicals, volunteering at an assisted living facility for the memory-loss, or catching up on her latest TV drama.
