Songs about Christmas filled the Shiprock Youth Complex gymnasium as community members participated Wednesday in the family winter conference organized by Restoring and Celebrating Family Wellness.

The committee is comprised of various community groups. Its members promote restoring and advancing harmony in families.

During the event, participants enjoyed activities that center on Christmas and on Navajo culture.

The annual event includes a holiday dinner, a visit from Santa Claus, distribution of candy, nuts and fruit bags, and door prizes.

Raymond Keeswood Jr., a member of the coalition, said the purpose of the winter conference is to provide space for families to gather, create memories and develop healthy relationships.
