Santa is due to arrive in Batavia Saturday morning Dec. 14 at the American Legion Building.

He will visit with Batavia children up to 12 years of age after a short Christmas movie that will start around 9 a.m. Each child will receive a gift and a sack of candy and fruit from Santa.

Again this year, goodie deals will be filled and delivered to the shut-ins and senior citizens in the community.

Anyone looking for cookies, candy or other goodies should contact Karen Smith at 641-799-0387, or Tycene Weber at 641-919-4442, or take them to the Legion about 8 a.m. so the plates can be filled.

This event wouldn’t be possible without the help of local businesses and the friends of Christmas.
