Thomaston Grammar School held its annual cookies with Santa event Saturday, Dec. 15. There were 110 student shoppers who came through to do their Christmas shopping in the store in the gym at TGS.  The Friends and Family of TGS group sponsored and ran the event.  Students were able to have their photo taken by Principal Ainslee Riley in the photo area.  All photos will be sent home to families as a keepsake of the event.

Students were paired with a shopper to help them to shop for family members and friends without their parents/guardians seeing what they purchased, keeping everything a great surprise. The gifts were then wrapped for them, so they could be taken home. While students shopped, the adults who came with them were treated to coffee or cocoa and cookies in tje cookie room, where they were also able to spend time talking with the other adults.

Students enjoyed refreshments, too. They could also leave letters for Santa in a magical mailbox.

In addition, raffle prizes were donated by the Prison Showroom, Hampton Inn and Rock Harbor Hotel, and sales of tickets for the raffles helped fund the event.
