We would like to thank all the people and businesses that made the Christmas Fest at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church a very successful and fun event. First, we want to thank our church members and friends who helped by donating cookies and items for the gifts auction, who decorated trees and who came and helped with the event. We also want to thank all the families who came out in spite of the inclement weather. We had a great turnout this year. It was wonderful seeing all the children having fun doing crafts, playing games and getting their faces painted. Thanks to our entertainment, Jamie Emerson, for providing a festive mood.
