Ronald McDonald was a special guest during a Christmas Party Tuesday night at Cornerstone Church in Statesboro.
Ronald came to the party for children who are being assisted by Safe Haven. Cassie Justen with the Exchange Club of Statesboro helped arrange for Ronald McDonald to appear. He performed magic, read "The Night Before Christmas" and signed autographs for the 30 or so kids in attendance.
The children also received a package of gifts, many of which came from "Shoeboxes for Shelters" that was founded by Airman Melissa Bartelt along with Staff Sgt. Daryl Shelton and Lance Cockrell.
