Santa Claus Day

Congratulations to the Rutland Community Club which sponsored another successful Santa Day on Saturday.  The sun was shining brightly on the town.  The kids headed to the Bank Building for some holiday cartoons while the adults stopped in at the Rutland Senior Center.  At the Center, the Rutland Raiders 4-H group held a bake sale and the Seniors sponsored a BBQ lunch. Bingo games were called by Paul Anderson, RCC President, with the  prize of $5 in Rutland Bucks for each winner.

Santa Claus stopped in the Hall and the kids were ecstatic to see him.  A few took the opportunity to have a friendly chat and get in their Christmas wish list while Santa was in town.

Following Santa’s visit, the annual turkey raffle was held and thirty-eight turkeys were awarded to lucky registrants. The turkeys were donated by Rutland residents and area businesses.  (For a full list of winners and the donors, check out The Rooster Crows of December 16).
