Thanks to the Union Busy Bells Extension Homemakers, Santa’s House in downtown Columbia City is cozy and festive!

The ladies gathered early Tuesday afternoon to help set up Santa’s House at the corner of Van Buren and Chauncey Streets, dedicating volunteer time to stringing up greenery, hanging wreaths and ornaments — all in preparation for Santa’s arrival this Friday, November 24 at 6 p.m. with the 11th annual Whitley County Lighted Christmas Parade.

Volunteers today included Shay Gilbert, Donna Batchelder, Nicki Venable, Joan Western and Deb Sheets Davis.
