In the Christmas spirit

Young and the young-at-heart kicked off Christmas last Wednesday in Elgin. A special meal, crafts, the arrival of Santa and a Christmas parade kept the town buzzing, beginning at 4 p.m. Cold temperatures weren’t enough to keep youngsters from telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas this year.

Then, at 7 p.m., traffic on Highway 14 was stopped and the sirens from the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department signaled the beginning of the Christmas Parade.
