Christmas Fun for Kids


Area families were treated to a “Christmas Fun For Kids” event on Saturday, December 4 at the Exeter Legion Hall. 

Santa was available for visits and while the families were there they could decorate Christmas cookies, enter their decorated gingerbread houses in a contest, get their face painted and make an ornament.

Winners of the gingerbread house contest were Charlie Veraska (six and under) and Addison Foutch (seven and above).  Through the event there were door prizes given out every 15 minutes.  Donuts and beverages were provided by the Exeter and Cordova churches.


There were also reindeer games, like decorate the felt tree along with ring toss on the reindeer, and treats to share but the highlight (besides Santa, of course), was the chance to visit the Country Gift Store.  For just one dollar kids could shop for gifts for their parents.  The kids could also have the gifts wrapped and take the home ready to go under the tree.


The event was coordinated and sponsored by the Exeter GFWC Woman’s club and the Exeter-Milligan FCCLA with contributions from Exeter and Cordova churches, Generations Bank and community helpers.

Throwback Thursday: December 4, 2011



On December 2nd both Spanish classes at Exeter-Milligan High School started making miniature star pinatas. We learned how to create these by watching a video provided by Miss Elizabeth Rios, our Spanish teacher.
