For the past thirteen autumns, Mr. Mickey has let his hair and beard grow long for an exceptional Santa project. Yesterday, fifty children sat on his lap for a picture and a visit with Santa, who brought a big bag of gifts for each of them. Earlier in the day, they enjoyed a hot lunch with their family or guardian.
About fifteen years ago, our dear friend, attorney Tony Seaton, started buying school clothes, shoes, a coat, and a toy for disadvantaged children in our area. He generously and quietly devotes his time and to numerous projects throughout the region.
In the following years, other friends have also contributed to this labor of love bringing immense joy to everyone involved in the project.
My Mrs. Claus look for the day included a white scarf, a gift from a blog reader. The Holly Red tank is here, and the cardigan is here, similar pants are here, similar shoes are here, a similar handbag is here.
