FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

MASSENA—The New York Power Authority is accepting reservations for its holiday pajama and movie party at the St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project’s admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center.

The holiday party will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 19, at the visitors center.

Children are encouraged to come in their pajamas and snuggle down to watch short, animated holiday movies including “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” (1966), “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (1964), “Frosty the Snowman” (1969), “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” (1970) and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (1965).

Registration for the event can be made by calling 315-764-0226, ext. 302. All children who are preregistered will receive a special holiday memento.

In addition to the movies, visitors can sample the array of hands-on exhibits at the Hawkins Point facility, which presents information on such themes as water power and the St. Lawrence-FDR project, basics of electricity and uses of electricity. Another highlight is the panoramic view of the project’s power dam from Hawkins Point.
