Santa Claus visits Lone Butte-Horse Lake hall

Fiona Grisswell: Lone Butte column

Lone Butte had a special visitor this past Sunday. Accompanied by two smiling elves, Santa Claus spent the afternoon visiting with some of the local kids.

Things were a little different than in previous years with each family assigned a time for their visit with Santa. This in no way diminished the moment as beaming faces and excited cries of “Santa!” greeted the jolly figure in red. In all, 56 children shared their Christmas wish lists with Santa and got their photos taken. The elves had raided the Toy Workshop before heading south and each child received a gift to hold them over till the big day. It was hard to tell who enjoyed themselves more as excited conversation and Santa’s laugh filled the hall.

Thank you to Santa, his hard-working elves and community volunteers for a delightful afternoon.
