The weather outside was a little frightful, but the mood was festive inside the Oak Harbor Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7392 Wednesday.

It was the VFW’s annual Christmas party for senior citizens, who came out in force to enjoy a buffet lunch of ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, salad and dessert. Even Old St. Nick put in an appearance, passing out gifts to all who attended, as well as more than a few hugs. Here, Belle Evans gets a squeeze from Santa Claus as Sugar Plum the elf looks on.
