Preston residents enjoy visit with bearded guest

Posted in Preston Features

Excitement was in the air early on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at the Fillmore Central Elementary School as children bound through the doors with one goal in mind - to talk to Santa. Santa needed to know what was on their lists for this holiday season.

There were those children who ran right up to Santa and leaped into his lap spewing words such as fire truck, doll, and the occasional puppy as items they must have. Then there were the little ones who were so ecstatic to see Santa - until the time came - when suddenly shyness took over and they were not able to utter a simple word.

In either case, Santa did his best to provide the parents with a photo of their child with him and the children each received a book before leaving.

Santa Claus was not the only attraction though as there were many activities happening in the elementary school. A Craft and Gift Shop was set up for children to purchase presents for family members and most children searched very carefully for the gift they thought was perfect for each person they were buying presents for and helpers even wrapped the gifts for the children so their family members would not see them.

Helpers Skyelar Veiseth, 14, Lina Della Libesa, 16, and Kaitlynn Aug, 17, worked in the Gift Shop and helped little shoppers with their choices and wrapped gifts for the children.

There were also crafts for children to make which kept some children busy for quite awhile in order to have their finished products look just the way they wanted. Once completed the project was taken home to enjoy.

Another highlight of the day in Preston was the Lions Club Breakfast with Santa, which many people enjoyed including Scott Stockdale and his sons Judah, 8, and Brendan, 12 who were warming up with some pancakes. Lion volunteers Glen Dale and Richard Kyllo were friendly faces greeting hungry faces for the breakfast in the cafeteria.

Having a hot breakfast on a cold day gave the children and adults the energy needed for all of the fun activities available at the Fillmore Central Elementary School. The breakfast was also sponsored by businesses in Preston who shared their support for the children to have a great day of fun they will always remember.
