POMEROY — Selecting a gift for that “someone special” didn’t come easy for many of the kids on the annual Christmas shopping tour in downtown Pomeroy Saturday.
This was the second year for the kids shopping event sponsored by the Pomeroy Merchants Association and Farmers Bank.
Brian Howard was leader of the group as they moved along Main and Court Streets going from store to store to look over tables of gifts priced at $10 or less. For most it was hard decision to come up with just the right gift for mom or dad or someone else they wanted to remember this holiday season. Decorated cookies and cupcakes were available to the children at several of the stores visited by the group.
Once the shopping was completed the children moved to the Court Street mini-park where Santa greeted each one and read a holiday story. Refreshments were served to wrap up the day’s shopping event.
