Sharing the season?s spirit
The Weyauwega-Fremont Christmas Giving Tree provided gifts and food for 97 families this year.
The distribution took place Dec. 15, at Ss Peter and Paul Catholic Church.
It was organized by Knights of Columbus Council No. 13702, with assistance from the St. Anne Society.
Don Planz said in all, 418 people received gifts, including 199 children age 16 and under.
Last year, the Weyauwega-Fremont Christmas Giving Tree supported 96 families.
He said the organizers appreciate the support of area churches, businesses, civic groups, students and residents, who gave money, food, toys and clothing for the effort.
“We couldn’t do it without these people,” Planz said.
