Another event coming up is on Dec. 4, also at the Legion in Freeborn. The event starts at 3 p.m. with activities for children, such as decorating cookies, making Christmas ornaments or decorations. Santa also comes. Christmas cookies, juice and coffee are served. There will also be the lighting of the Hospice tree and the reading of the names of those to be remembered. At 5 p.m. there will be a community potluck. After the potluck attendees will play bingo where everyone is invited to play. Many kids along with adults participate and everyone has a good time. Everyone goes home with prizes, and it is free to play. Last year over 300 prizes were given away.
