Santa came to visit with the residents of Alhambra Care to share his bag of gifts. Juanita Grothaus, with a twinkle in her eye gave a small tug on Santa's beard to make sure he was the true Santa.

Help The Historical Committee

The local Historical Committee would like to ask the citizens of Alhambra and surrounding communities to please watch for items that could possibly have some historical significance to future generations.

Many times a letter, postcard, receipt orsale bill from a past business may help someone to remember the past. When cleaning out drawers, basement, attics and garages, please remember the historical society.

Contact Kenny Gehrig at 488- 2425 if you would like to donate anything. Nothing is too insignificant.
