PEPPERELL -- "My kids are asking me about going to Santa's Workshop again this year!"

The Prescott Grange members have been very happy to hear how much families are enjoying an afternoon of creativity and industry.

What was more fun? Putting the toys together or painting them?

The Prescott Grange was a busy workshop as families roamed from project to project, enjoying the choices of race cars, planes, snowman decorations, candle holders and more.

Santa enjoyed the enthusiasm and made a list of Christmas requests.

The kitchen was busy as Grange members handed out cookies, cupcakes and cider.

At 5 p.m., as the last elves left for home, the tree was lit and another Christmas season was well underway.
