Smiling for Santa
Dozens of children and their families came out Saturday for Jefferson County Parks and Rec’s annual “Lunch with Santa” event at the Jefferson County Community Center at Sam Michaels Park. Youngsters also enjoyed a meal and completed a craft. The center has hosted a number of pre-holiday events for young people and in the coming week will hold a class in construction of gingerbread houses. For details on that, turn to Page B2. After Christmas, parks officials will offer a multi-day sports camp to keep kids occupied until classes resume in January.
