Santa Day in Harmony brought smiles and wishes

Posted in Harmony Features

On Saturday, December 7, 2013 the Harmony Community Center in Harmony, Minn. was filled with kids who were there to see the man dressed in red. As they stood in line and watched other children climb on Santa’s lap, they were going over their lists in their heads not wanting to forget anything on their wish list for the upcoming holiday. Children were able to take home a picture of themselves with Santa which was a prized possession upon leaving the Community Center as was the book the children each received after their photos were taken.

The day began earlier for many as the volunteers prepared for the free cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure screenings that began at 7:30 a.m. and were offered by Fillmore County Public Health.

The Harmony Lions Club was also busy in the wee morning hours preparing to serve a pancake breakfast which included pancakes, sausage, juice, milk, and coffee. Many hungry people sat down to a hearty warm breakfast by the Lions. There were many volunteers of all ages helping at the breakfast including Kayden Shaw, age 7, who is part of the Little Miss Harmony Royalty, and was working hard with a smile on her face.

The Harmony Lions Club also collected eye glasses, cell phones, and hearing aids at the event which will be forwarded to people in need. The Salvation Army Red Kettle was also at the Community Center with volunteers ringing bells.

A Cookie and Candy Sale was held by the Greenfield Lutheran Youth giving attendees a chance to pick out their favorite goodies to take home with them. The assortment of cookies and candy made the decision a difficult one. Volunteers working at this fundraising sale included Nathan Birch, 15, and Matson Kiehne, 15, who worked as cashiers for the Cookie and Candy Sale.

Children were able to decorate cookies which was sponsored by Gunderson Lutheran Clinic. Some cookies were decorated so heavily they could hardly be picked up in one piece while others had little or no decoration, but each one tasted fantastic. Sisters Autumn and Amber O’Laughlin concentrated very hard on frosting their cookies to perfection. Autumn and Amber are the daughters of Marge and Jacob O’Laughlin of Rushford, Minn.

Kids were able to do their Christmas shopping for their Mom’s and Dad’s with gifts to choose from that were all under $3. The shopping was sponsored by the Fillmore Central ECFE and volunteers were on hand to wrap .....
