Never too old to celebrate Christmas

Folks at the Joplin Senior Center were getting into the Christmas spirit over the weekend, and they got some help with a visit from Santa Clause.

Santa and plenty of other people were partying it up at the Joplin Senior Center’s Third Annual Christmas Bash. There were plenty of hand-made crafts to buy, and some fun raffles benefiting the senior center as well.

“We set a goal and we’re trying to meet that goal, and then we know that this coming year, we would have some funds that will help out with the needs that are there,” said the center’s Tom Black.

And the fun wasn’t just aimed at the elderly. Some lucky kids got to go home with Christmas stockings filled with toys.
