History of the Wassail Celebration

In 1952 a young adult men’s group at the McCulloch Recreation Center (now Jennings Recreation Center), was looking for a project for the Christmas season which would involve the whole community. They developed a family style Christmas party and called it the Wassail. The first program was a success and has been held at the Center every year for 64 years. Please join us!
