NORWICH — The Norwich Family YMCA will be holding their first Winter Wonderland holiday event in the Community Room from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, December 10.

The new event is an expansion of the YMCA's annual Gingerbread House Family Event, according to YMCA Youth Development Director Kelly Reppert.

"It's kind of a new take on the gingerbread event that we've had in the past," she said. "I thought that the gingerbread workshop was kind of a good thought, it just needed a little bit more, I don't know, excitement, a little bit more to offer. And we thought with Winter Wonderland, we really got into the whole idea of decorating and really turning the Community Room into a winter wonderland."
