Santa Visits Governors Park 2016

Photos and narrative by Ted Smith, Communication Committee

On a chilly December 10, 2016 afternoon Santa visited the Governors Village neighborhoods on his way back to his North Pole workshop. His reindeer were being well cared for by the Chatham County Firefighters as they drove him around giving the reindeer a well deserved rest.

The Governors Village Social Committee arranged for this visit and Santa brought lots of candy canes for everyone. Everyone came out to welcome Santa and the children were able to let him know the gift they really, really wanted this Christmas. The children said they were almost always nice except for that one time they were a little naughty. Santa listened to their wishes and he will do his best to fulfill them.

At each stop parents were able to take family photos before Santa had to leave to head North. His sleigh and reindeer were at the firehouse all ready for the trip back.

Happy Holidays!
