Line dancing class at MLK center

Ivy Jo Smith will lead a line dancing class from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday at the Martin Luther King Jr. Center located at 905 Market St., Steubenville.

The class is part of the Lupus Education and Support Program sponsored by the Urban Mission Ministries/Neighborhood Community Development Center and funded by the Ohio Commission on Minority Health.

Participants are reminded to wear their Santa hats.

Santa letters, books available

The Friends of the Brooke County Public Library in Wellsburg will again be assisting Santa Claus in sending letters to local children.

With the group's help, Santa will send letters personally addressed to each child and reminding each to keep being nice. The cost is $1.75, which helps St. Nick defray postage costs.

The group also is selling personalized children's books, which feature the recipient as a character and can include the giver, names of the child's friends and where the child lives. The books, which include Christmas stories and many other themes, are $14 each and normally can be ready in a week.

Stop by the Brooke County Library or Follansbee Branch Library to learn more.
