Santa surprises kids at Neighbor to Neighbor

It was 10 days early and there was nary a flake of snow to be seen, but Santa dropped in anyway, surprising the children gathered this afternoon at Neighbor to Neighbor.

Clearly, the three Sisters of St. Joseph who operate the women’s center were in on the surprise since they had a gift for Santa to give each child. In fact, the moms and grandmoms and other women who regularly visit the center in downtown Concordia also each received a gift as part of today’s Christmas Party. Volunteers who on other days help out at Neighbor to Neighbor were guests, too. There were about 15 children and 20 or so women taking part.

Sisters Jean Befort, Ramona Medina and Pat McLennon hosted the party, with assistance from full-time volunteer Ali Remick.
