Jerseyville Parks & Recreation Department (JPRD) hosted 24 participants for the Christmas Vacation trip held on Friday, December 27. The group traveled down to St. Louis to see the matinee of Elf: The Musical at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. The group then enjoyed a scrumptious family-style fried chicken dinner with all the fixings at Castelli's Restaurant at 255. Before the spectacular day ended, the bus journeyed through Rock Spring Park to see the beautiful holiday lights. The department offers day trips every month, which are always open to both residents and non-residents.
