Merry Christmas!

‘Tis the season to remember
all the lovely days of yore
And to once again send greetings
As we did so oft before

And so we’re offering this simple art
From kids from 1 to 92
By our senior friends at St. Anne’s Salvatorian Campus
And students at St. Joseph Academy, too.

We wish you and yours the blessings of
Christmas and a joyful New Year.

Merry Christmas, from Berghammer Construction!
