Dozens of community residents showed up to the Menno City-School Auditorium to take part in the annual Santa Day and Appreciation Day Saturday morning, Dec. 5. Santa Claus was on hand for the children, and a free meal was on hand for everyone in attendance. Sponsored by the Menno Community Club, the event is a way to show appreciation to the public for their patronage throughout the year.
