Vernon workshop spreads Christmas cheer

Children’s Christmas Workshop enables kids to feel the joy of giving

Kids are getting in the season of giving.

The Children’s Christmas Workshop took place Saturday at People Place – where kids could purchase gifts for their loved ones at a price that wouldn’t break their piggy bank.

Gifts ranging in price from five cents to $1 were picked out and then wrapped for kids at the 12th annual event.
