Twenty-three people left the Monticello Area Chamber of Commerce Great Christmas Giveaway on Dec. 19, winners!

Numerous amounts of Chamber Bucks were given away valued at over $3,200, as well kids prizes valued at over $700. All winners had to be present to win.

The first drawing of the night was for cash prizes from the Monticello Rotary Club. Third place, $150, went to Lou Holly. Second place, $250, went to Greg Kromminga. First place, $600, went to Brandon Duncomb.

Santa Claus visited with area children on Dec. 14, 16, 17 and 18. Many children told Santa what they wanted for Christmas and even gave him a list for some ideas. Every family who visited was entered into a drawing for a giant Christmas stocking full of donated presents from local businesses. The winner was drawn on the last night of Santa’s visit, Dec. 18. Elizabeth Bradley from Monticello was the winner!
