Atchison County Veterinary Clinic was open late so local pet owners could get their pet’s picture taken with none other than Santa himself. Pictured from left to right: front row – Jessica Lambertsen with “Macy”, Hallie Riggins, and Teresa Shaw with “Alli”; and back row – Cathy Riggins, Jane Walter, Dr. John Walter, and Santa.

It was the first in what will hopefully be an annual event. #ShopAC Night had Atchison County businesses staying open until 8 p.m. to cater to customers with great deals and Christmas gift ideas. Twenty-four businesses participated in the event and many people came out to take advantage of the late hours and low prices!
The winner of the drawing for a $100 gift certificate to an Atchison County business of her choice was Debbie (Gary) Johnson of Fairfax.
