Tables were filled with gifts at the Parentís Gift Table on Dec. 2. Local children could come into the room at the Superior Volunteer Fire Station and pick from hundreds of items, unaccompanied by their parent, of course.

One table was filled with gifts for men and the other for women. Tools, gloves, office supplies for dad and dishes, soaps and home dťcor for mom. The Clark Fork Valley Montana Women in Timber group hosts the event every year where as many as 100 children have perused the tables searching for that special something for their folks.

Members then wrap the gift and send it home with the kids to put under the tree. All items are free of charge. Funds for the gifts are generally raised by Robert Lyons who stands on Main Street in Superior for several hours during the holiday season and collects cash from passing cars. Santa was also at the event and so kids could tell him what they wanted for Christmas this year.

The group also makes gift holiday gift baskets for families who request one. Filled with food other holiday goodies. They will be putting the baskets together on Dec. 14 at the 4H building and they will be delivered soon afterwards.
