Santa’s Workshop- at the BACC - December TBD
The Barron Chamber of Commerce works in conjunction with the Barron Area Community Center to sponsor Santa’s Workshop. The workshop will be in its 11 year and has been very well received. The event allows youngsters to purchase that special holiday gift for family or loved ones and then have it gift wrapped by Santa’s helpers. Businesses have the opportunity to set up a table with their products and offer them at a price point that youngsters can afford to purchase for their parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, etc. Not only is there an opportunity for businesses to make a small profit, but also gives participating businesses that added exposure creating a positive impact on the community.
Following the shopping experience, the youngsters enjoy pizza and a movie. Not only do the kids have a great time but also the volunteers and staff who help coordinate this event.
