There was a lot of creative fun at the Chesterville Branch of the SDG County Library on Dec. 15 when the Ho-Ho-Holiday Craft for Kids event was held. It was a drop-in style event with several different kinds of Christmas crafts made. Customer service assistant Jen Harper seemed pleased with the turnout and mentioned how next Sat., Dec. 22 there would be a Christmas movie matinee at the Chesterville Library which will include popcorn, hot chocolate and the chance to watch The 12 Dogs of Christmas beginning at 10:30 a.m. From the left, Kaylee Daines, Jen Harper, Randy Wiggins, Owen Wiggins and volunteer Shea Desjardins display some of their creations which included decorations for either the house or for the Christmas tree.
