ROMNEY — It seems that Christmas went off without a hitch this year, thanks to the Hampshire County kids who helped Santa find his lost elves in Romney.
The Great Elf Hunt in Romney, which started at the end of November, wrapped up just before Christmas as a big part of Romney’s Winterfest project. Thirty-six elves were scattered in windows around town, and kids could grab a map, find the elves and return the map to the “Letters to Santa” box outside the Soft Cloth Shop on Main Street.
Four rewards were given to Hampshire kids to show Santa’s gratitude:
• The Haza family, Springfield, $100
• The Ashton family, Romney, $75
• The Bennett-Rannell family, Romney, $75
• Kenley Iser, Augusta, $25
