Some of Eckville’s youngest residents spent the afternoon making holiday themed crafts on Saturday

 

Trinity Ehret makes careful cuts to create a festive Christmas Card the afternoon of Dec. 8 during the Recreation Board’s free craft session. Eckville’s Recreation Board hold craft sessions like this for most major holidays. The Christmas craft session is generally less attended, according to Wayne Hazell, with the board. Craft session held at Halloween and dying Easter eggs in the spring are often more well attended than at Christmas. There were four families who came out to make Christmas themed crafts on Dec. 8.
