Over 80 children were given a Christmas present on behalf of the Belgrade Commercial Club. A crowd of over 110 was on hand for the Belgrade Bucks drawing at City Hall, which took place at a little after 6pm. The Wold family also gave horse-drawn wagon rides from 4pm to 7pm. The weather was good enough for the event...cold, but with no wind.
