Santa and his helpers

Santa takes a moment of rest, Saturday, Nov. 26 with Amy Lusson (left), president of Main Street Cave Junction; Lindsey B. Jones (top right), executive director of the I.V. Community Development Organization; and Megan Pugh, executive director of the Illinois Valley Chamber of Commerce. The three groups collaborated by holding a “Small Business Saturday” event at Bruno’s Cavern in hopes of encouraging residents to shop local. (Photo courtesy of Lindsey B.
