Our local Fire Department will bring Santa Claus on Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. to the bon fire. After your stroll on the scavenger hunt, come by the lot between Sierra Pacific Real Estate and the Post Office for delicious homemade cookies. The cookies are made by the Brownie and Girl Scouts in our community. The Lions will be brewing up the hot chocolate. It is a fun night for the whole family to enjoy.
