Happy Holidays!!!

Wishing you a Joyous Holiday Season!!!
This holiday season joy, love, and unity were evident all throughout out city! Several organizations and residents hosted various events that made impacts in the live’s of children and families throughout DHS! Today, we celebrate a few endeavors with pride and celebrate our city!!!

(Pictured above: one of our local church’s preparing for a toy giveaway)

A group led by Donna Poyuzina and friends (that included our local UPS store, Rotary, and others) endeavored to provide Christmas toys for all in need. This process began with sign ups months ago and concluded at Miracle Springs with plenty of toys, bikes…. and SANTA!!!!! Because you never know when a family may have fallen on hard times, or just may be in need, it’s beautiful to witness a community rally together through various events to provide for our children.

Between the Desert Sun and NBC news, out local resident Fritz Collins has become quite the celebrity. Opening his home to all who desired to take a picture with Santa, he provided an atmosphere of holiday cheer for all who took part! Mr. Collins and his wife not only provided free pictures with Santa, but served up delicious hot chocolate, and provided toys for all (spinners, hot wheels, etc.) Facebook pages were flooded with pictures and excitement and many are already looking forward to next year!!!!
For the first time ever our city held the annual Holiday Parade in the evening with a light show and small amusement park. The brisk, cold Desert Hot springs air didn’t deter the city from enjoying a wonderful night on the town. You can see through the pictures that all in attendance had a an evening of fun and excitement.
We wish you a Happy Holiday season and a prosperous new year. See you all next week with a new resident spotlight! Let’s Advance DHS!!!!!! 2019 is already shaping up to be an amazing year!

However, their contribution to the city goes above and beyond printing and mailboxes. “We love DHS because when we purchased this store we were received with open arms; we…
