    Ann Smith, a resident of Snow Pond Residential Care in Sidney, dances with a person dressed as Santa Claus during the 23rd annual Christmas in July at Melody Ranch in Fairfield on Thursday. More than 300 residents of area senior homes socialized, danced, sang songs and enjoyed lunch during the event, hosted by Melody Ranch owner Bethany Vigue. Vigue’s husband, Gerald, who shared hosting duties and played the role of Santa Claus, died in February, but Bethany said she will carry on the tradition. “I love doing this and will continue every year as long as the hall is available,” Vigue said. She added that seniors enjoy the opportunity for a summer time Christmas celebration since the traveling is better in July than December.
