Storm Lake St. Mary's High School student council will be operating Santa's Secret Workshop at the Lake Avenue Lounge building/old Masonic Lodge during the Saturdays next month -- Dec. 1, 8 and 15 from 10 a.m. -- 2 p.m. The shop will also be open during Miracle on Lake Avenue Thursday, Dec. 6 from 5:30-8 p.m.
The shop offers inexpensive donated items that young children can purchase for their parents, siblings, grandparents and even pets for Christmas. The children shop with a Santa's Secret Workshop volunteer, then the gifts are wrapped so that the gifts can remain a secret.
The students could use more contributions of small, inexpensive items for the shop -- especially items for children and men. To contribute, contact student council moderator Ryan Berg at 732-4166 or drop items off at St. Mary's School Office at 312 Seneca Street.
