On December 24, 2912 Tsegyalgar East hosted an old fashioned Yankee swap for both kids and adults along with a pot-luck dinner to celebrate the holiday.
Since many of the children are in grade school, it seemed appropriate to integrate with a more Western approach to celebrating the season. Parents, neighbors and friends of the community joined us for a lively gathering.
A few weeks prior to this event, Joe Zurylo met the kids at a local X'mas tree farm in Ashfield, MA where they selected a tree and brought it back to the Schoolhouse Gonpa for decorating.
