Thirty-seven children are participating in the Barnum Community Education play "The Year Without a Santa," set to be performed December 1 and 2.

Barnum kicked off the holiday season with the annual Christmas tree lighting in the city park on Sunday, November 26. Santa was on hand to hear Christmas wishes and those attending enjoyed hot dogs, cookies, cocoa and carols with the Barnum High School band and choir.

Barnum Community Education will present "The Year Without a Santa" on Friday, December 1, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, December 2 at 1:30 p.m.

This year's play is directed by high school student Laec Lekander, assisted by Heather Carlson. There are 37 children participating, ranging from third grade to high school seniors. Saturday's performance is free for all children sixth-grade and under thanks to the Barnum Community Club. Children can also visit with Santa and get their photo taken following Saturday's performance.

Saturday, December 2, is also the fourth annual craft fair fundraiser for local high school students with special needs. Come purchase some homemade gifts, enjoy lunch and watch the holiday play.

Barnum Community Club sponsors many youth activities throughout the year from Spring Fever Days, the Christmas tree lighting, the family Halloween party, and much more. If you are interested in joining, attend a meeting (held at 6:30 p.m. the first Wednesday of each month at the Lazy Bear in Barnum; no meetings December and January).
