The Auburn Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1603 hosted a Christmas party for the Clover Manor Day Care School Children on Dec. 15. The event opened with a pizza served by five Marine Corps members and Post Commander Bill Bradbury making milkshakes. Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived to present gifts to the kids, who danced and sang songs before having cupcakes and ice cream.
