Kids enjoyed Shop with Cop

WELCOME — The Shop with a Cop program from the Sherburn/Welcome police was a success.

Seventeen children from six families participated with the officers from Welcome/ Sherburn and some of their families, a Sheriff’s deputy and the Trimont chief of police.

They would like to thank all those who contributed and made the program possible this year. They’re planning to do the program again next year.

Thanks to Officer Nicholas Smith for organizing this positive police program.


Upcoming events include Christmas Eve services at area churches.

Trinity Lutheran in Welcome and the Waverly Lutheran Church, north of Welcome, are both having candlelight communion services 5 p.m. Monday.

The other Circle of Faith congregation at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Ceylon will have its children’s service 7 p.m. Monday.

Also, St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Welcome will have a Christmas Eve candlelight service 5 p.m. Monday evening.

Area residents are welcome to join any of these congregations to celebrate the reason for the season.


Please have a safe and Merry Christmas.
