The Greenwich Silver Shield Association and the Greenwich Library will host the 34th annual Townwide Children's Holiday Show on Sunday afternoon.

The tradition of hosting the party "was started way back in the '50s. I went to it as a kid and it resurrected 35 years ago by the Shield," said retired Lt. Tommy Keegan, who is the association's community liaison.

Admission to the 1 p.m. show Dec. 15 — at the Cole Auditorium of Greenwich Library — is free. However, the Silver Shield requests each family attending to donate one new unwrapped child’s toy. The donated toys will be given to the Town of Greenwich Social Services Division and distributed to families in need from the community.

This year’s program — designed for children 10 and younger — will feature “Magic by Melissa — The Queen of Hearts.” Her magic and balloon sculpting will be a delight for all ages. And, of course, Santa Claus will be “flying in ”from the North Pole with a gift for each child attending.

There also will be music by the Trummytones.

For more information, call Keegan at 203-869-9519.
