Santa Claus is coming to Kewanee on Saturday afternoon at Northeast Park. Brock Tumbleson broke the news that Santa will be visiting Kewanee to check up on his naughty and nice list on Saturday afternoon at Northeast Park beginning at 4 Pm on Saturday. 

Santa will be at the big shelter house at Northeast Park. Folks are reminded to bundle up for the occasion as there is no heat in the big shelter. Brock Tumbleson was our guest along with Eddie Tolliver from the Kewanee Salvation Army on Wednesday's People to People Program. Brock and his buddies in the Kewanee Klassics will be performing this Sunday at 2 Pm at First United Methodist Church at the annual Salvation Army Benefit Concert. 

There is no cost to attend as Brock mentioned but there will be kettles to fill up. At Sunday's concert, Brock has promised a couple of special guests, including Pastor Dan Craig and there will be a tribute to our friend Linda Bohls, the former Director of the Kewanee Salvation Army who retired earlier this year.
