WYANDOTTE – Mrs. Claus read stories to children patiently waiting to see Santa Dec. 3 as the Wyandotte Historical Society and Bacon Memorial District Library, 45 Vine St., hosted its annual event.

Wyandotte Historical Society volunteer Beth Labadie said the society is fortunate that Bacon Library hosts Santa and Mrs. Claus every year.

“They do all the decorating, open the building for us, and Mrs. Claus comes in and reads stories to the children,” LaBadie said, “and then they can visit Santa Claus and tell him their special secrets.”

She said they also have a Santa “Secret Shop” downstairs where children can shop for their families, with gift prices ranging from 25 cents to $4.

“It’s just a wonderful event for the kids,” LaBadie said. “We love to do it.”
