Magic by Kevin followed by a visit from Santa Claus were a big hit with the children of Barbour County Chamber members during their recent annual Christmas party at the Medallion Restaurant in Philippi.

Santa delivered individually-wrapped and personally-selected gifts for each of the fifteen children in attendance.  Appreciation was expressed for the support of the BC Bank, Builders Center, Freedom Bank, Medallion Restaurant, Barbour Community Health Association, and the Kittle Funeral Home.

Pictured above with Santa at the party are Bella Duke, Jasmine George, Eleanor, Heidi, and Helen Hoxie, Amiyah, Embree and Jonathan Kennedy, Lumen, Michael and Nicholas Mullens, Gabby and Parker Robinson, and Brianna and Kaitlin Tenney.  The host for the affair was Chamber President and attorney Hunter Mullens, whilc Ron Phillips from Builders Center led in the singing of Christmas carols.  The cost of special children’s meals was underwritten by the Chamber of Commerce.
