Christmas in the Park

20211211_1946170Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped in Pleasantville and visited with everyone at the shelter house in Cora Shadle Park on Saturday, December 11th. Kids and adults alike stopped by to have a picture taken with Santa.

The shelter house was fully decorated for the Christmas season. Smokey Row warmed everyone up with a cup of hot chocolate, kids decorated Christmas cookies, and carolers from the Pleasantville Baptist Church sang holiday favorites!
