The Concord Historical Society celebrated its annual Concord Country Christmas on Dec. 1 at the Concord Mercantile on Franklin Street. Fun was had by all with the cookie exchange, bake sale and other treats while holiday tunes filled the air with music provided by the Mercantile Musicians and Bob Muhlbauer. Santa himself made an appearance along with one of his reindeer. Visitors shopped for the perfect gift and enjoyed the rich history of Springville and smalltown living.
