A gift for Santa Claus

Salem Second Saturday Home for the Holidays featured different activities downtown. Santa Claus visited Reach for the STARS where 19-year-old Maddie Hall of Lisbon, a 2018 DAHS graduate, was on hand to pass out special keepsake ornaments to children visiting Santa. Reach for the Stars is a student-run gift shop at 440 E. State St. It is under the guidance of the Columbiana County Education Service Center. The event Saturday showcased an array of items created by the transitional students like Maddie who were also hand to greet visitors. (Salem News photo by J.D. Creer)
