Snoopy Santa A Success



SANTA AT CITY HALL
Last night, Sunday, we cruised past City Hall with our dinner guests to show them the Snoopy House display and found the place humming with activity. It apparently was the first night of Santa's visits - he's going to be there each night through December 23rd - and
there were around 40 people in line with their small children, patiently waiting to see that "jolly old elf".

HAPPINESS ON DISPLAY
We wandered around with our friends, showing them the handiwork of the Jordan family and friends of more than four decades, and watched the visitors laughing and having a great time.

THANKS, AGAIN
This will probably be my last "Snoopy" post, so I want to thank the Jordan family and friends and all those involved for saving this wonderful holiday tradition for the children - young and old - to continue to enjoy. Yes, it took city staff resources to help get the display set up and running and will probably take a few dollars to pay for the power, but many community members and organizations have also stepped up to help keep this tradition alive. Many are volunteering their time. Others are providing supplies - cide
r, cups, etc. Thanks to you all. Merry Christmas.

Tamar,
Thanks... I have many things in my life for which I'm extremely thankful and I don't mind sharing them here. I'm OK with the fact that they might not evoke comments... Thank you for yours..
