De Soto gets ready for the Holidays
Despite appropriate headwear, Ron Creason couldn't pull off as good of a Santa impression as his co-worker Mike Henre. The two city employees put up downtown Christmas decorations last week.
The local holiday season will officially get under way with the lighting of the mayor's Christmas tree Saturday. The event, which starts at 5 p.m. at the Community Center, includes a visit from Santa Claus and music from the De Soto High School Madrigals and local Brownie troop. The Senior Center will serve chili.
Holiday festivities continue next week with the annual De Soto Chamber of Commerce Christmas dinner Dec. 7 at the Community Center. The event will include Kansas City Monarchs baseball legend Buck O'Neil as the featured speaker.
