PAULDING – The Paulding Lions Club is once again hosting "Meet Santa" for the children. The community event is planned from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Paulding Eagles.

Last year, about 100 children participated and had an exciting time.

Activities on Saturday will include crafts for kids while waiting for Santa to arrive, Christmas music, a free meal for children provided by the Eagles Adies Auxiliary, a raffle for children to win toys, and the opportunity to sit on Santa's lap and have their picture taken. All children receive a candy treat so no child goes home without a prize.

The adults can participate in their own raffle for a chance to win some money.

Past response to "Meet Santa" has been astounding and the Lions Club members expect a big turn-out again this year.
