GLADSTONE — Santa Claus surprised the 63 children who attended the “Snow Much Fun!” story hour last Saturday.

Children enjoyed stories read by Santa. Sugar cookies were decorated during the event and the children created a Christmas holiday craft.

This story hour was sponsored by the Friends of the Gladstone Library.
