CHRISTMAS CRAFTS: In addition to having the opportunity to meet Santa, families and friends who stopped by Artworks this weekend were invited to decorate small wooden ornaments to be hung on a Christmas tree. Stacie Wright, Artworks gift shop manager, said the Santa visit and crafts are a good way to entertain local youth and bring the community together.
