Nearly 100 kids got their chance to whisper their Christmas list in Santa’s ear and take an ‘elfie’ with him at the Milbank Visitors Center on December 7. First Bank and Trust in Milbank and the Milbank Area Chamber sponsored the event. Capture the Moment Photography of Milbank created the photographs.
Cassidy Schwagel, Milbank’s 2023 Snow Queen and Little Miss Milbank, Tenley Adelman, helped Santa by greeting the families and handing out treats.
Val Mears, vice president of First Bank and Trust in Milbank, said, “It is always a joy to spread holiday cheer in our community and we had so much fun this year!” Susie Wendland, owner of Capture the Moment Photography, agreed. “Santa was so nice. I overheard kids asking him for everything from Nintendo switches to a puppy.” Now, parents need to cross their fingers and hope Santa can remember which houses get the puppies.
