Magic at the Mill My VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE FOR FOUR DAYS(THIS EVENT WENT ON FROM DEC19-24) BY ALONDRA ARELLANO PINEDA

THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE AT THE WILLAMETTE HERITAGE CENTER. OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING, THERE WERE LOTS OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS DECORATED TO GUIDE PEOPLE TO THE CORRECT PATH.
AT THE END OF THE PATH, PEOPLE WERE LED TO FOLLOW MORE LIGHTS.
PASSING THE BRIDGE, AND LOOKING BACKWARD, I SHOT THE DECORATIONS.
ON TO THE RIGHT OF THE BRIDGE,THEY SET UP DUCK-SHAPED LIGHTS AND COW-SHAPED LIGHTS ON THE RIVER.
THE DECORATION OF THE LIGHTS EVEN LIT UP TO AROUND THE MILL BUILDING.
THE DESTINATION OF THE PATH, THE MILL BUILDING.
AS THE CLOCK TURNED TO 5:30, PEOPLE STARTED COME IN TO LOOK WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THE 3RD FLOOR.
THIS YEAR THEY STATIONED THE ENTRANCE TO BE THE FIRST ACTIVITY FOR KIDS TO DO. VOLUNTEERS HELPED KIDS BY HOLDING THE BAGGIE FOE THEM WHILE THEY POUR IN THE THE REINDEER FOOD( OATMEAL AND SPARKLES).
THE MOST POPULAR STATION OF ALL, WAS TO TO TAKE A PICTURE WITH "THE SANTA WITH DREADLOCKS".
IN THIS SHOT, YOU CAN SEE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WHERE LINED UP TO SEE SANTA.
NEXT, IT WAS THE VICTORIAN SILHOUETTES, WE ASKED PEOPLE OF ALL AGES TO STAY STILL WHILE TRACING THEIR SILHOUETTES. I VOLUNTEERED TO HELP IN THIS ACTIVITY 3 TIMES.
I TOOK A QUICK PICTURE OF SAGE K AT THE SILHOUETTE STATION ON MONDAY
AFTER WE HAVE TRACE THEIR SILHOUETTES, THEY CUT IT OUT AND GLUE IT TO A WHITE PAPER.
I WAS IN THIS STATION FOR THE FIRST DAY OF THE EVENT. MY TASK WAS TO KEEP THE TABLE CLEAN OF SCRAPS AND HOLE PUNCH THE PAPER PUPPETS. THEY HAD A GOOSE, PUSS'N BOOTS, AND SANTA CLAUSE
I WOULD SAY THAT THIS IS THE STATION THAT TOOK KIDS THE LONGEST TO FINISH ESPECIALLY THE TODDLERS.
THE MOST POPULAR JOINTED TOY WAS THE PUSS'N BOOTS PAPER.
ALSO, SOME KIDS DECIDED TO DO THEIR OWN DRAWING.
AND IN THE LAST STATION, THEY PLACED A TRAIN STATION FOR PERCY FROM "TOMAS AND FRIENDS".
