Santa’s Little Helper

James Rutberg

James Rutberg, 5, seems to have found his calling — ringing the bell to invite good little boys and girls to come and visit with Santa Claus.

Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce held its annual Children’s Christmas Shopping Party Dec. 4 at St. Augustine School.

Vendors presented an array of merchandise to help children cross items off their shopping lists. And the children had the chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas.
