Exeter Cub Scout Pack 218 spent part of their meeting last Monday making holiday greeting cards to send to the American Red Cross. The Red Cross distributes the cards to wounded military personnel in the States.
Santa visited Exeter on Saturday morning. There were lots of lists given to Santa while he was here and the kids enjoyed visiting with him . Each child also received a gift bag from Santa and the rest of their time was spent playing Christmas Bingo. The Exeter Chamber of Commerce sponsored the visit with Santa and the Bingo.
Exeter-Milligan met Friend in basketball. The EM boys won 68-52 and the girls lost a close matchup 46-42
Swim trunks, snorkels and a surfin’ Santa filled the Exeter-Milligan gymnasium Tuesday evening as the Exeter-Milligan Kindergarten through sixth grade presented their Christmas program, “Surfin’ Santa.”
The third through the sixth graders performed the musical “Surfin’ Santa.” The third and fourth grade classes were dressed in their best surf and vacation outfits while the fifth graders played the elves and the sixth graders were the members of the cast.
Peytan Brandt played the Santa who was struggling to make it through another cold winter with his main elf, Jingle, played by Mitchell Manning. Mrs. Clause was played by Katherine White. The bad guy, Mr. Grimley, was played by Spencer Pribyl with his sidekick “Wally,” Trever Zelenka. Kevin (Joel Klemm) and Ellen (Macy Due) overheard Mr. Grimley’s plans to take over Santa’s workshop and mailed themselves to the North Pole only to find that Santa had already left for an island vacation.
Santa is kept busy by the activities director, Marvin (Theron Odvody) and snorkels and surfs before his head elf, Jingle arrives. Jingle convices Santa and Mrs. Claus that they didn’t really win a vacation, it was all a plot to take away their toy workshop. They return just in time to save Christmas and Mr. Grimley decides to donate his extra toys to Santa.
Mrs. Angie Murphy, K-12 music teacher, directed the program for the elementary students.
