American Legion Post 39 of Harris welcomed families to its annual Santa Day event Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Legion Hall in downtown Harris. Though it was too cold outside this year for kids to hunt for money in straw piles, they found plenty of warmth inside with Santa and the toy shop where gifts were chosen and wrapped for moms and dads to open on Christmas morning.

Children found delight in telling Santa what they want for Christmas and more during a special Santa Day event at the historic Grant House Hotel and Eatery on Dec. 14. Decorating sugar cookies in the Rose Room, 4-year-old Bella Utermoehl, of Pine City, put the finishing sprinkles on her frosted Christmas cookie when she took the first bite. Her favorite part of the cookie was the pink frosting, which just happened to match her shirt.
