The Castor Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) building was full of activity on the afternoon of Dec. 4.
Kicking off at 1 p.m., the Castor Women’s Hospital Auxiliary hosted the ever-popular cookie walk.
For $10 people were able to purchase a plastic container and fill it with as many volunteer-baked delicious cookies as possible. Starting off with well over a dozen trays of baking, by 1:30 p.m those had been whittled down to just two remaining.
After the cookie walk concluded, Mandy Fuller and Castor FCSS hosted a children’s craft in the facility.
Thanks to generous community donations, Fuller was able to set up a side room with a variety of new items for sale for anywhere from $0.50 to $2 in cost, so that the children could do some Christmas shopping for mom and dad. Items ranged from socks to playing cards to bath bombs.
A little later in the afternoon FCSS provided snacks of hot chocolate, apple cider and a variety of squares. Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped in to say hello to the children too!
Around 60 kids made gnomes, decorated cards and cookies or made ornaments throughout the afternoon.
