Tonganoxie Mayor Jason Ward finishes counting down to the lighting of the Mayor’s Christmas Tree as Tonganoxie Elementary School fourth-graders Jakob Edhome and Alex Hartpence pull the switch. The two students were selected for the event and their ride with Santa Claus (Tom Putthoff, right) because of their grades and record of helping at school.
