This is my first year here in Payson. My neighborhood put on a food drive. They set up luminaries along side of the road throughout the neighborhood. When you entered the neighborhood you drove through the streets lined with the luminaries and saw all the Christmas lights in the neighborhood. At the end of the block, Santa was there taking donations of food and handing out candy canes.
I thought that this was a great thing to do, because people might need a little help with food this winter. Also, the people who organized this event and all those who helped set it up deserve a big thank-you. What a nice Christmas gift to those who might not have much to enjoy.
