Ho, ho, ho



Kids Corner Preschool students sported Santa hats and reindeer antlers at their annual Christmas program Tuesday evening. Appropriately, the theme was Joyful Noise. There are 59 students enrolled this school year, which was interrupted when a fire broke out overnight Oct. 18 in the entry of First Christian Church, 215 E. Sandusky Ave., where the school is housed in the basement, resulting in damage which necessitated cancellation of classes. Classes since have resumed. Topping of the program was a visit from St. Nicholas himself, portrayed by Logan County Commissioner Dustin Wickersham. (PHOTO | KID’S CORNER PRESCHOOL)
