KIRKSVILLE — Crowds packed into the Kirksville Community Center Saturday to celebrate an early Christmas and help a local food bank.

Fifty-nine vendors sold various arts and crafts to a seemingly constant stream of visitors.

The price of admission was a donation of a non-perishable food item, to be delivered to God’s Outreach in Richmond.

At noon, Santa Clause made an appearance, listening to children’s wish lists and posing for photos with families.
