Union Mission to Host Annual Lion Club Christmas Party

Posted: Updated:

The Union Mission in Fairmont will host the annual Lions Club Christmas party Saturday night.

The party aims to give 100 children in the Fairmont area a Christmas celebration.

Parents applied to have their children involved.

The only requirement was that they weren't involved in any other Christmas giveaway.

The Christmas story will be read to the children and one of the Lions will dress up as Santa and distribute gifts.

"It's a wonderful thing for the Lions to do. They've been doing this for 70 years. It makes all the difference in the world for a mom and a dad who are having a struggle and have to choose between food and Christmas; they have a Christmas now," said George Batten, Union Mission director.

The party starts at 7 p.m. in the Mission Auditorium.
