Christmas Party coming up
Break out your “Sunday best” and clean those camera lenses, because Santa Claus is coming to town —Thurman Town Hall that is. Jolly old Saint Nicholas is sure to delight children of all ages when he visits from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday Dec. 15. Once Santa arrives, he visits with the children for a while, then each child gets a chance to tell him what item they most want to open on Christmas morning. Every child will receive a gift from Santa at this free event.
