Fire department helps Santa land in Mayer
With no snow on the ground it is impossible for Santa to come in and land his sleigh, so the Mayer Fire Department came to the rescue and brought Santa into Mayer for the caroling and tree lighting on Friday, Dec. 2.
There was a lively group playing and leading the carols, along with books on the tables to provide lyrics to those of us that can’t remember that many anymore. You could hear the singing outside and down the street prior to entering the bakery.
Kim and Igal Blumstein hosted the party with hot chocolate and cookies for everyone. And if you haven’t ever tried their pastries, you have missed out on a great treat. They opened their shop late to accommodate the caroling and for the children to visit Santa and relay the items on their wish list.
This wasn’t just for children, as the firemen felt they should have a turn since they were the ones that brought Santa to Mayer. And not all youngsters were ready to meet Santa, as one little boy insisted Daddy remain nearby.
With the timers off, the tree lights didn’t come on as planned, but no one seemed to care as they were all very happy and busy with everything else happening.
Cordes Lakes craft show
The Cordes Lakes Craft Show was the last chance for getting that one-of-a-kind Christmas gift. The vendors complied with the request of true crafts and many showed tremendous skill and craftiness in their wares. There were hand-made wooden toys, painted gourds, hand-crafted ornaments, and many other items for sale. It could have been called an Art show as the artistic talent was evident on the various tables as you walked around the room.
