Mrs. Santa Claus stopped by Creswell Library during the Tree Lighting event on Saturday, Dec. 1. She read Christmas stories and took some time to color with some of her fans.

In addition to all the holiday festivities on Saturday, Dec. 1 in Creswell, Creswell City Hall held an open house, inviting the community to get creative and help design future city parks. All ages were invited to help the City design two parks in Creswell, which will be located on Grassland Street and South 2nd Street. Jeff Warner, above, gave out free Creswell City swag - a pop-out frisbee with the City's logo on it - to all who contributed. City staff and Parks Commitee members took photos of the various parks that were designed by the public. Those photos will be turned over to landscape architect, or to the Architectural School at the University of Oregon to have a rendering made. Those renderings will be presented to the city council by the Parks and Tree Advisory Board, and once city council has chosen the design, the City will begin to write grants and install the parks.
