Santa House prep

Downtown Merchants Association member Camme Cain, left, places decorations along an illuminated section of the Santa House the association oversees Monday afternoon on the north lawn of the Calloway County Courthouse. She was joined by her daughter, fellow DMA member Alexis Cain, right, as they prepared this particular house for its 25th year of providing a place for Santa Claus to hear the Christmas wish lists of children. Santa begins listening to requests Saturday.
