The Emery County Commissioners and the Emery County Chamber of Commerce sponsored the annual senior citizen Christmas dinner on Dec. 10. County seniors gathered for an evening of socializing and a ham and turkey dinner with all of the trimmings with pumpkin pie to finish things off.
The Val Jensen band serenaded the seniors as they ate their dinner. The chamber had gathered gifts and prizes from local businesses and a drawing was held and nearly every senior went home with a prize.
The highlight of the evening came with the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. The ladies sat on Santas lap and he gave out prizes. Mrs. Claus also received her share of attention as she sat on the lap of all gentlemen winners.
It was an evening of Christmas cheer made possible by area businesses.
The dinner was held at the Huntington Senior Center.
