It’s almost that time this Sunday 4-6 p.m. the big guy from the North Pole will be in Kampsville at the Center for American Archeology Gym. Lots of awesome raffle baskets. Santa will be handing out stockings with candy and oranges. Thanks to the generosity of American Legion Post 1083 and the auxiliary . They will also be receiving some special treats thanks to Marcia Agney at the Calhoun Country Christmas store. Our hot cocoa bar will be handing out Hot Chocolate thanks to Amy McBride and the Landing for donating the hot chocolate. We will have snacks, games and everyone’s favorite treat walk. Anyone wanting to donate baked goods please get a hold of me. Of course every child will leave with a present. The presents are bought with generous donations from individuals as well as The Sons of the Legion Post 1083, Thrivent Lutheran (Mary Ann Eaker) and the Millie Schumann Memorial.
It truly does “Take A Village” and Kampsville is always working together.
Also the money raised from the basket raffles is what keeps the party going.
When the party gets over at six you’re not gonna wanna leave Kampsville without taking a drive through town. Every street in Kampsville has at least a couple houses lit up. Of course Mr. Christmas Bob Smith is always a must see. The Landing has a beautiful Christmas Village display in their window you will definitely want to see for yourself.
Christmas in Calhoun was held Saturday on the Hardin riverfront. It was windy but the sun was out. So many neat vendors. I had the honor of escorting the Calhoun Royalty.
We enjoyed Grinch hot chocolate from the Calhoun High School cheerleaders and of course listening to The Calhoun Entertainment Company, the best singers in Calhoun.
The Calhoun Entertainment Company presented their Christmas concert Sunday at the Presbyterian Hall. They did a great job as always and had a wonderful crowd.
The Vetter siblings of Evelyn Vetter and Boots Vetter as well as generations of cousins enjoyed a Christmas get together Sunday at Straight Home. Lots of fun was had by all.
The Andy Johnson family gathered Friday night to pay their respects to Andy. He will definitely be missed by many.
Baby Clara Thornton visited Friday evening with Grandpa and Grandma Terry and Joann Haussmann. She also got to meet Santa and the Grinch at Blue Ridge Market.
Congratulations to Luke and Jae Brady who welcomed their fourth daughter Dec. 8 Evelyn Louise Brady weighing 7 lbs. 2 oz. Her big sisters are absolutely in love with her.
We have a new licensed driver here in Kampsville. Clayton Titus turned 16 on Dec. 7. Happy Birthday Clayton.
