Santa discusses Christmas wishes with Joseph Klir.
For decades, Santa made the Memorial Hall in Fort Jennings an early stop on his visits to children across the area. Many remember the lines out the door to visit Santa and Saturday, this cherished tradition was revived thanks to a generous sponsorship from a Fort Jennings business.
One hundred twenty young attendees were treated to visits with Santa and received holiday treats.
Now that Santa has officially welcomed in the Holiday Season to the Fort Jennings area, an additional event has been planned. The Jennings Memorial Association invites everyone to attend its first Christmas Gala from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at the hall located on St. Rt. 190 in Fort Jennings.
There is no charge for the event and it will feature festive Christmas displays, an operating model railroad built by the Putnam Association of Railfans, antique toy exhibits, and an opportunity to view the newly-remodeled facility.
Complimentary snacks and beverages will be provided and the St. Joseph’s Church Choir will perform at 10:45 a.m.
