Christmas with Santa at the Legion

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

To the Editor:

On Saturday, Dec. 8, the Greencastle Sons of the American Legion Squadron 58, along with the Women's Auxiliary, held our Christmas breakfast and party with Santa.

We had 48 children ages 0-10 along with nearly 100 adults. Our Legion hall was packed. Each child sat on Santa's lap, talked with him, received an age-appropriate present and a bag of candy. Everyone had a great time.

We would like to thank Bob Whiteside for doing an outstanding job as "the man in red," Tony Sparks for cooking the breakfast, and a big thank you to all of Santa's helpers, Joan Clifford, Ellie Rudicle, Lori Allen, Tina Rogers, Gary Strahl, Donna Ford, Mike Ford and Bill Tucker.

Thanks to everyone for a job well done.
