    My Dad worked at the DEC lab in Ray Brook in the late ’70’s – and I still remember going to these Christmas parties as a very young child – it was wonderful for a little five year old to meet both Smokey the Bear AND Santa! I hope that everyone working to throw these parties realizes the joy that they’ve brought for decades!

    Happiest of Holidays to all!
