The 12th annual Barton’s Family Christmas Gathering happens in The Old Courthouse/Spirit Square this Friday evening, Dec. 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Santa will be there to receive children’s Christmas wishes and there will be free horse-drawn wagon rides.

There will also be free hot chocolate and free hot cider to warm hands and bodies.

Ruth Kellogg from InHarmony will also be there with her Alaskan Malamutes Geoffrey and Anakin who will be making their last public appearance with their sleigh for Christmas photos to raise funds for the Salvation Army’s Christmas cheer program.

After six years having their pictures taken to raise funds for the Salvation Army Geoffrey, 13, and Anakin, 8, are retiring from the photo circuit this year and will be replaced with a new sled dog team next year.

Families are invited to bring along their cameras to take pictures with Geoffrey and Anakin in exchange for a minimum $2 donation to the Salvation Army Christmas kettle.

HUB International Barton Insurance is hosting the gathering and invites the community to enjoy the evening.
