Giftshop hosts fun holiday event


 FARMINGTON — A sit-down tea with Mrs. Claus is taking place at 2:15 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, from 2 to 5 p.m., in the Bass Room at the Franklin Memorial Hospital, hosted by the hospital auxiliary gift shop. Those interested in attending should purchase tickets in advance — before Dec. 8 — at the gift shop at Franklin Memorial Hospital.

 Also available during the event will be goodies from Mrs. Claus’ kitchen, a “letters to Santa” table, coloring, games and crafts, a Holly Boutique where visitors can buy gifts for under $5, and visits with the live reindeer.

At 3:45 p.m. Mrs. Claus will read a special story titled the “Reindeer Wish” about a girl who wishes for a puppy, but befriends a baby reindeer and they set out on adventures together.

 A nominal fee will be charged for this charitable event which benefits the auxiliary. FMI:  call 779-2581.
