The Wauneta Breeze

 

Wauneta was home to a flurry of activity last Saturday, Dec. 15.

There was a craft fair at the American Legion featuring local vendors and vendors from throughout the region.

At noon, Mercy Meals of Southwest Nebraska opened their doors for a bake sale and silent auction fundraiser.

Then, at 1 p.m. MT the Chamber-sponsored events started with a free matinee showing of “Rise of the Guardians,” sponsored by the Women of Today.

After the movie Santa made his grand entrance by catching a ride on one of the Wauneta Volunteer Fire Department’s trucks, which carried him down Tecumseh to meet up with the crowd in front of the Chateau Theatre.

Santa’s arrival brought smiles to the faces of children, young and old, when he stepped off that big red truck.

After passing out his goodies with the help of his Christmas elves, Santa moved to the gazebo where he took the time to listen to the special Christmas wishes while children sat on his knee.

While Santa was occupied with the children, the Wauneta Chamber members took a turn at gift giving by holding their annual Christmas drawings.

Chamber president Page Johnston called out the names of those who won prizes donated by Chamber businesses.

Three dozen prizes were donated by Wauneta Chamber businesses this year to help Wauneta celebrate Santa Saturday.
