Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived in town early on Saturday so the local fire department gave them a ride up the Bloomfield Elementary School with sirens on.
Several youngsters ran outside to see what was happening and didn’t even need a coat as the weather that day was beautiful. Although no snow was on the ground youngsters didn’t seem to mind as they watched Santa and Mrs. Claus get off the fire truck.
Just inside the door, the halls were decked with Christmas lights, Santa’s good list, and and invitation to come join in on the gingerbread house decorating workshop.
Once inside Santa took a seat and invited kids to come sit on his lap to see who had been naughty or nice, and of course what they were wishing for from Santa this year. Refreshments and cookies were served and children and parents were able to enjoy them as they wait their turn for Santa.
The wagon rides by Kelly Bruns were a hit with the kids and I’m sure it was enjoyed by all. Fortunately it was a nice day so he could bring the wagon for the rides..
Gingerbread houses were being created just down the hall from Santa, and kids were having fun decorating them, and licking their fingers every now and then. Watch next week’s paper for results.
Santa could even be seen strolling through the many booths at the craft fair. There was something for everyone including tupperwear, candles, wooden creations, rugs, windchimes, and so much, much more.
A benefit and silent auction was held at the Bloomfield Community Center for Jacob Johnson, son of Emmett and Renea Johnson, of rural Bloomfield. Jacob has been diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, but did come out to visit for a bit on a sunny afternoon and enjoy some lunch with family and friends.
Chili and chicken noodle soup, along with some cinnamon rolls were served. The silent auction went over well too, as their were some people still hanging back to try and get what they were bidding on.
