Santa makes socially distanced visit to children

-

QUEENSTOWN — The Women of the Moose Chapter 1696 hosted a sweet, socially distanced Christmas party for children in the community. The free event was held Saturday, Dec. 12 and was funded by the women’s group Tuesday night bingo.

Officer Shelly Hartge said only half of those registered attended the event which was considerab­ly different due to COVID this year. Still those children who participat­ed adapted very well to the spacing requiremen­ts and did a wonderful job following directions while still enjoying the games and magic show, she said.

“The kids really had a blast,” said Hartge.
