The Elmwood Area Community Club hosted sleigh rides and holiday activities for county kids on Dec. 15 at the Elmwood Auditorium. It featured pictures with Santa Claus, horse-pulled wagon rides around town and a variety of activities inside. Kids that took a picture with Santa received a gift bag and there were drawings for gifts by age range as well.

Some of the activities included "snowball fights" with soft, puffy white balls, Christmas-themed face painting and cookies to eat.
