• Christmas You Missed

    Posted by Kimberly Shapazian at 7/24/2014
    On Saturday, July 26 from 8am to 11am the Armed Services YMCA is holding their annual “Christmas You Missed” for military families who were separated at the holidays due to a deployment.

    During their 8th Annual ”Christmas You Missed” every sight, sound, scent and feel of Christmas morning will once again be restaged for San Diego military personnel. Families will finally have an opportunity to trim trees, sing carols, enjoy Christmas breakfast, photos with Santa, and exchange gifts, while strengthening their family bonds. The event is free and will be held at the Murphy Canyon Youth Center in the Murphy Canyon military housing community.
