Ferron’s Christmas Party was held at the Ferron Fairgrounds in their large Fairgrounds building December 9. The weather outside was frigid as it hovered near zero degrees on a clear night. Inside the hall along the East wall of the Fairgrounds building were soup bowls, crock pots filled with chili, trays of scones and barrels of hot chocolate all supervised by City Recorder Adele Justice and City Treasurer Tammy Bennett. At the South East end stood a Christmas

tree and signs that stated “Let It Snow” displayed. The piano and sound system stood in the South West corner near empty space for games and singers. The Ferron City Council arranged fun events to take place in and around the Fairgrounds during the party. There were piano players, singers, guitar players, children’s games, a bonfire, a hayride and of course Santa Claus for the children. The First Place Winner in

Abby Jensen and family attend the party. Callie, Riker and Trig. the Chili Cook-Off was Sherrie Swasey. The Second Place Winner in the Chili Cook-Off was Tricia Hunt. Mayor Elect Trent Jackson challenged each of the winners to compete against him in next years Chili CookOff. When the dinner of Chili, scones and hot chocolate were consumed Santa arrived to invite the children

to come to his workshop for a visit. Jolly Santa Claus had his special small building erected at the Fairgrounds, painted red and decorated inside and out as Santa’s Workshop for interviewing children to see if they were naughty or nice. The strings of Christmas lights hanging from the eaves and around the exterior door gave the building a festive atmosphere. Inside

the cozy Santa’s Workshop was Santa himself seated in a rocking chair greeting the children as they came through the door. Tim and Tammy Lacock arranged a few games for the children as they waited for an opportunity to visit with Santa. One of those games was the newspaper snowball fight. Tim showed the children how to take a newspaper page, ball it up and then throw the newspaper ball like a snowball. The snowball fight was thrilling. Tim Lacock later introduced a game of ball with the children seated on the

floor and passing balls back and forth. Those individuals that wanted to go Christmas Caroling were given the opportunity to join the hayride. The hayride consisted of a trailer load of hay pulled by a tractor that drove up and around through several city streets as the carolers sang Christmas Carols on this very cold evening. The bonfire was placed on the North West side of the Fairgrounds building near the new ball field and a place where people could gather to tell stories and enjoy the heat of the fire.
