Christmas store at G.L. Armstrong

WhatsOn Dec 10, 2014 Hamilton Mountain News

The Christmas store was open Tuesday and Wednesday at G.L. Armstrong elementary school. The 14-year tradition at the Concession Street school allows students to buy gifts at low prices and get them wrapped, with the help of parents and older students, and ready to put under the tree. There are also raffles — all donated by area businesses — baked goods and popcorn.
