Annual Local Childrens Charity Event

 Genea Bloggers Christmas Advent Calender - I have simply posted about Christmas of those of Sunnyslope farm with no particular subject or day specified.

In the last post I briefly mentioned the local Childrens charity Event,  which was shown every year on CBS.  It was shown  at Christmas time with Jolly St. Nick handing out presents to the handicapped children. For reasons of her own Sissy watched the show.  If she did not know it was on,  her mother dutifully called to her to let her know she could see it.

Sissy had worked with children  while attending college with needs like theirs and so would eagerly look to see if any familiar child would be there.  She never  really saw anyone she knew, but watched each year anyway.
CBS  or channel 4 and 12  came from Mankato broadcasting with a tall local tower by Lewisville, which  brought in channel 12.  It was the only station that aired clearly. Unless dilly dalling around brought in some very fuzzy reception, it simply had to satisfy.

So therefore the children  and their parents were mostly of the county Faribault, Minnesota.
