For year 2016, the Keep Hope Alive Christmas party solicited no monies and did not have an event. The chairman of the committee Mrs. Pat Quinn passed away in May 2016. Without her leadership, the month of December was here shortly after that and the committee had made no arrangements or plans for a Christmas Party. So, for year 2016, there was not Christmas Party. It was agreed in 2017 the committee would begin meeting in July to prepare for the December Christmas Party.
