South Suburban's elf on a shelf

South Suburban's elf on a shelf

Dec 04 2018

A traveling elf named Snowflake will be making appearances at South Suburban Parks and Recreation’s (SSPR) recreation centers, beginning December 5. Patrons are encouraged to spot the elf inside the recreation centers for a chance to win a gift card.

The first person to locate Snowflake and notify a customer service representative will receive a SSPR gift card valued at $15. After Snowflake has been found, he’ll move to a new location inside the center. Children can still search for Snowflake and receive a small gift at the front desk for locating him. Remember not to touch Snowflake, as he will lose his magical powers. Snowflake will have a new location every day.  

Snowflake’s Itinerary:

Lone Tree Recreation Center, 10249 RidgeGate Circle
December 5-9

Sheridan Recreation Center, 3325 West Oxford Avenue
December 10-13

Buck Recreation Center, 2004 West Powers Avenue
December 14-18

Goodson Recreation Center, 6315 South University Boulevard
December 19-23
