   Local children enjoyed cookies, cocoa and a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus Tuesday at The Therapy SPOT. 

Children with different abilities and their siblings were invited to enjoy refreshments and make Christmas crafts in a calm, child-friendly environment. In addition to the craft room, an outdoor therapy area and cookie decorating room were available. 

The free event, held for the third year in a row, was open to everyone in the community.
