Santa to visit Fayette Dec. 15 12.5

Written by David Green.

Santa will have a new location this year when he stops in Fayette to visit with children.

St. Nick will make an appearance from 5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 15 inside the old ticket booth on the Village Green. Santa’s Workshop on the Village Green will include his helpers who will make sure each visitor receives a treat.

Either before or after a visit with Santa, visitors are welcomed into the opera house to warm up with soup and a sandwich. The meal serves as a Bullthistle Committee fund raiser to help cover costs of the annual festival. The meal cost is $5.

The Fayette Community Band and Chorus will present a concert that same night at 7:30. Director Karen Joy King will lead the groups in a variety of musical entertainment—and with a variety of musical instruments.

Look for additional details in next week’s Observer.

The Parkers Corners store, featuring the work of area crafters, will remain open throughout the dinner and concert.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
