Depot Plaza in downtown Barnesville has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland Friday in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus Friday night.
The man in red will be on hand for free photos with kids from 5:30-7:30 p.m. A special guest and a unique meteorological event are also planned.
While there, children can pen letters to Santa that will be assured rapid delivery to the North Pole. Hot chocolate and s’mores will be served.

Empty Stocking Fund:
Last week’s After Hours raised over $10,000 for the Empty Stocking Fund and it was sorely needed after vandals struck the toy warehouse. For more on that see Geiger’s Counter on page 4A.
Toys for Tots:
The Toys for Tots drive is ongoing. New toys may be dropped off at Southern Rivers Energy on Hwy. 341 South through Dec. 16. For more information, call 770.358.1383.
