Three little guys gathered under the Christmas tree to play together and enjoy the day at Santa's Helpers festive finale for the 2016 Christmas season in Kimball.

The holiday season is coming to a close and the year's Santa's Helpers finale included a chili cook-off, cookie exchange and wreath auction with plenty of time for friends to gather and enjoy the festivities.

Karen Robinson was presented a special award by Kim Baliman for her many years of service during the Christmas season in Kimball.

The final event for the grassroots group was held on Sunday, Dec. 18 at the Eagles Club #3389 in Kimball.

Dave Klinkhammer was awarded first place in the traditional chili cook-off and Steve Pinkerton took first in the non-traditional category with his pork green chili.

An abundance of cookies were available for bakers to trade, complete with recipes, and wreaths were hung for a silent auction.

All together, Santa's Helpers organizer Kim Baliman said, the season was a great success.

The residential lighting contest will conclude on Dec. 21 and Dec. 22.
