Two hundred see Grinch's performance at library event


   About 200 children and parents attended the Jefferson County Library's Christmas Fun program at the library's Rodriguez Annex on Saturday Dec. 15.
   The program featured Christmas music by the Library Band and holiday sing-a-longs by Cassia, Landon, and Shannon Winegar.
   A very comical performance by the Grinch, himself, (Michael McGinnis) of How the Grinch Stole Christmas had the audience laughing out loud.
   Then, to the delight of all the children, Santa Claus (Mike Lyons) made his appearance. At the close of the program, children posed for photos with Santa or the Grinch.
   About 20 children won Christmas books as door prizes in the drawings that were interspersed throughout the program.
   At the end, all the children took home a small bag of Christmas gifts from Santa, the Grinch, and the library's teen volunteer elves (Lily and Olivia Bemrose, Cynthia Carvajal, Allison Forman, and Jamie and Jennifer Roth).
