Angels in disguise gave children in our area a merry start to the Christmas season.

The VFW Post 6227 Clown Unit has been hosting their annual Christmas party for kids at the VFW in Spencerville for 38 years. This year over 150 kids participated in the party, each receiving a gift and a chance to tell Santa what else they wanted for Christmas. Clown Unit President George Cox says that all the Clown Unit members are like angels in disguise and that the party is one of the most important things they do, making sure that every kid gets to celebrate the season. 

"It means that those children are going to get something for Christmas, and that's our sole purpose for this party," says Cox. "We just didn't want little children to go without, it's a very special time of year."

The VFW had some many kids take part in the event this year that they could not fit them all in the room. The Clown Unit will meet the children who could not be there Sunday (12/3/2017) at the Good Samaritan House on Tuesday.
