Holiday Magic at Wissahickon Valley


Wissahickon Valley had some special visitors join us last week. Spruce Run Farm surprised our members with two reindeer! Clarice and Ginger left our kids speechless and enthralled. This magical moment was enhanced even more when Santa arrived with the Whitpain Fire Company!! Our club members got pictures with Santa and the most photogenic reindeer ever, Clarice.

Not only were our members able to interact with the reindeer, but they also learned lots of new information. Did you know that male reindeer can reach 400  – 500 lbs? This is twice the amount that a female reindeer weighs! All reindeer shed their antlers however, males lose their’s in the fall while female’s keep theirs through the winter and into the spring.

Although Clarice and Ginger were not the flying type, they provided so much joy and excitement. Families, club members and neighbors alike joined in the magic that is reindeer!! We cannot thank Mr. Dave and Ms. Cassandra enough for making the trip to Wissahickon Valley from their farm in Bloomsburg. Clarice, Ginger and Santa will always serve as a magical memory for our Boys & Girls Club family!!
