Ellsworth Elks Lodge hosts annual Christmas for Kids party

ELLSWORTH - Children and their families in Ellsworth had a chance to eat lunch with Santa Sunday.

The Ellsworth Elks Lodge hosted their annual Christmas for Kids Party Sunday afternoon.

Kids could decorate desserts, create crafts, and get their faces painted.

And of course kids could get their picture taken with Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas.

The event encourages families to be together in a safe and friendly environment.

"Before we do this, we also have gone out and purchased toys for 70 children in the area that need things like clothes, toys and other things that they might need to have," said Susan Piper, the secretary of the Ellsworth Elks Lodge.

It takes almost 50 Elks members to put on the yearly family-friendly event,

More than 250 people attend the free lunch each December.
