It was a full day of Christmas celebration in Exeter on Saturday, December 3. The Christmas for Kids event began in the morning with a visit from Santa.
There were games to play and prizes to win, along with face painting and ornament decorating with the members of the Exeter-Milligan FCCLA. Each child was able to frost and decorate several sugar cookies and there were also guessing games.
Area churches sponsored donuts and juice for everyone and there was free freshly made cotton candy. In between all of the fun, the kids could pay one dollar and enter a shopping area where they could purchase a gift for each parent and then help wrap their gift.
The Exeter G.F.W.C. Woman’s club has coordinated and sponsored the event for the past few years.
Following the Christmas for Kids excitement there was Christmas Soup-er Bingo sponsored by the Exeter Community Club. There was a free will donation lunch along with bingo for everyone. After several rounds of bingo and prizes then many went caroling in the village delivering soup, sandwiches and cookies.
