HUNTINGTON – Local residents took a break from the holiday bustle Dec. 15 to enjoy time with family members decorating “gingerbread” houses at Stanton Hall.
Sponsored by the Huntington Community Events Committee, cardboard houses were provided, along with frosting, candy, pretzels and ice cream cones (to use for trees or “unicorn horns”) on the colorful projects.
Second grader Riley Bresnahan, 7, was proud to show off his house, and so were family members Bonnie, Roman and Alice Kubacki, who enjoy returning for the activity every year. “It’s my favorite thing to do,” admitted Alice.
Felina Knachel, 9 and Lilliana Caliento, 7, held up their houses for a photo, although Lilliana said that her father had done most of the work, while she ate the candy.
Fawn Busby and Lisa Goding also enjoyed spending the time out with their kids, Toni Goding, 9, Stephen Goding, 5, and Adelynn Busbee, 9.
On Saturday, Dec. 21, Santa will make an appearance at Stanton Hall at 3:30 p.m. before his traditional ride through town on a fire truck. Children may wait for him to arrive beginning at 3:00 p.m., where there will be crafts and refreshments, sponsored by the Huntington Recreation Committee.
