Lunch with Santa

Have lunch with Santa at the Avis Fire Co. from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. Bring the kids in for lunch, when Santa will visit with each child and listen to the children’s wishes for Christmas morning. Lunch is no charge for kids 12 and under. Each child will also receive a small treat from Santa.

Covenant concert

The annual Christmas concert at Covenant United Methodist Church, 44 W. Main St., Lock Haven, will be presented at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, with a prelude by The Lockport Drifters and other music of the season by the church choir, a select quartet, a ukulele duo, the Covenant Praise Band, and the children’s choir. Refreshments will follow.

Waiting Together

Waiting Together is a support group for adults with incarcerated loved ones. The group meets at Gamble Farm Inn, Jersey Shore, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. the second and fourth Thursdays of the month.

Buggy country

We live in a region where it is not unusual to share the road with an Amish buggy. PennDOT encourages drivers to allow a margin of safety and remember that horses are not always predictable. If you come up behind a buggy, slow down, do not honk the horn, and stay back. At a stop sign or light, leave 10 to 12 feet between your vehicle and the buggy.

Happy birthday

Dorothy Crays.
