Santa and his elves visited Elness Convalescent Center last week to deliver handmade afghans to all of the residents.

The 99 afghans took Kiwanis Club of Turlock member Donna Oppelt a total of 990 hours to make. This is the third year the Kiwanis Club donated handmade items to local long-term care residents.
