By this time next week, the Iola and Humboldt town squares will be lit up for the holidays. Toy collecting and preparations for Santas Toy Shop are well underway.
KwiKom Communications has donated the use of their former building on the square for the toy shop this year. The parade, with hundreds of children caroling around the square to bring Santa to town, is planned.
There are hundreds of details and volunteer hours that go into making our town squares a magical Christmas place and bringing Santas Toy Shop to life.
