The children of Ray County must be very good, as Santa Claus made stops to visit kids in Orrick Friday night and Richmond on Saturday. Quintan Calvert, 6, of Rayville, brought along his teddy bear to meet the jolly old man, Saturday at the Ray County Courthouse.
He asked Santa for a train for Christmas. Ray County Coalition sponsored the event this year, after the Richmond Lions Club disbanded and a sponsor was needed. Many area high school students were involved in the event dressed as elves, helping children make crafts, such as jingle bell necklaces and pipe-cleaner trees. Children were treated to goody bags after their visit with Santa. The coalition plans on making this an annual event. (Photo by JoEllen Black/The Daily News)
