Saturday the twelve names were drawn for the winning kids in the Hamilton Downtown Association annual Christmas Sheep Trail. At Chapter One Book Store, the Grinch made an uncharacteristic friendly stop and pulled the names from a box of completed entry forms. The 12 little sheep, hand-knitted locally by the Knotty Knitters, were placed on shelves in a dozen Hamilton businesses. After the entrants searched around and matched up the sheeps' names with the stores, they dropped the completed entry at Chapter One. The weeklong search ended Friday, December 21.

Congratulations to the winners - Lauren, Aiden, Hasalyn, Kerry, Cecelia, Cierra, Logan, Julian, Brannen, Braadon, Janie and Brennan. Most of the them claimed their sheep Saturday. And many thanks to the Grinch for not taking the toys for himself. He was green with envy, though. Merry Christmas from the Hamilton Downtown Association
