Santa draws a crowd at annual ECFE event

Montevideo American-News
Children met with Santa Claus before gathering in the cafeteria to have supper with Santa and Mrs. Claus Wednesday evening.

Each year, the Montevideo Early Childhood Family Education department hosts a Supper with Santa event at Sanford Elementary. Besides the opportunity for children to meet Santa Claus, the event includes a pasta supper, holiday cookie decorating, holiday crafts, and storytime with Mrs. Claus. Each child attending was also given a book. This year's event saw 280 visitors.

A variety of booths were set up for children visiting the ECFE Supper with Santa event to spend time decorating Christmas cookies, along with various holiday-themed craft projects.
Creating Christmas crowns and cards were among the activities at the booths manned by school staff and student volunteers.
