Saturday morning's Santa Claus Parade in Straffordville was well-attended with representation from local community groups, organizations and businesses. 'Save the Hall' signs were also in abundance. The traditional parade route, starting at Straffordville Public School, usually finishes at the Straffordville Community Centre, but was altered this year because the hall is still closed. Instead, the parade concluded at Plank Road and Third Street. Straffordville Lions Club used the Straffordville Fire Hall to have hot chocolate with Santa following the parade.
