Published 12:00 am Thursday, December 4, 2003

A little more than a week after Thanksgiving, Lawrence County's Christmas season will be in full swing.

As part of the museum's Christmas activities, the Lawrence County Historical Society will once again sponsor its Candlelight Walk. This year's tour of seven churches will begin at 5 p.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church on Fifth and Vernon Streets. A bus will be available for people who are unable to walk. For more information, contact the Lawrence County Museum at 532-1222.

Christmas would not be complete without Santa Claus. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, West Ironton Kindergarten will have Lunch with Santa. The cost will be $2.50 for lunch and $3 for a photo with Santa. From 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, children age 10 and younger and their caregivers are invited to Breakfast with Santa at King's Daughters Medical Center's Parkview Cafe, sponsored by the Winter Wonderland of Lights and KDMC. Pancakes, juice and cereal will be served, and children will be invited to visit with Santa and his elves after breakfast. There will be no fee for children, but adults will be charged $1. Proceeds will benefit the Winter Wonderland display.

Later in the evening, a local organization will have a fund raiser for children who may not have a Christmas otherwise. The Knights of Columbus will have a dinner from 4-8 p.m. For $5 per person, the organization will serve a dinner of cabbage rolls, mashed potatoes, corn and rolls. All proceeds will go toward the KofC Toys for Tots in the area.

On Sunday, the Ironton High School Varsity Singers will rekindle "Christmas by Candlelight" in the I.H.S. Auditorium. There will be no charge for admission.
