Surprise visitor

Santa Claus himself joins festivities and volunteers Alex Just (from left), Torri Jesse, Danny Wolf and Olivia Jesse during Sunday’s eighth annual Illinois Valley Toy Run. The all-day event included a 40-mile classic car cruise leaving from, and returning to, Darius Miller for the afternoon. New this year was the addition of vendors. The entry fee for the cruise was a new, unwrapped toy valued at least $10 for a boy or girl, which will be distributed during the Christmas season.
