More than 160 children and their parents and grandparents came out to enjoy all the fun at the Iroquois Legion on Thursday, November 21. The star of the party was undoubtedly the Jolly Old Elf, Santa Claus himself, who popped in from the North Pole.
The Christmas party was sponsored by the Iroquois & District Business Group.
With goodie bags donated by the Iroquois-Matilda Lions and Doug Byers, and wrapped by Elf Jim Mustard, and a hot dogs/chili dinner organized by Iroquois Public School Parents Council, no one went home hungry. Ontario Early Years crafts tables and OPP escorted hay wagon rides from Donald Barkley just added to the fun.
“Nice to see the community getting into the spirit of Christmas,” said Tracey Stewart, secretary of the Business Association.
