  • Santa in Bagdad

    The Bagdad Ruritan Club for the third year hosted Christmas with Santa on Saturday night at the club’s building in Bagdad.

Abby Brunner was one of those children, and she showed some hesitance about taking her perch before warming to task. Club President Kac Newton said about 100 were expected to attend. If you look behind Santa’s beard, you might see an uncanny resemblance to Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger.
