Christmas in the Park

DSC_3345Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped in Pleasantville and visited with everyone at the shelter house in Cora Shadle Park on Saturday, December 14th. 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 or coffee, kids decorated Christmas cookies, and carolers and musicians from our local churches sung holiday favorites!
