Santa’s Visit To Governors Village 2017

Photos and narrative courtesy Ted Smith.

On the bright, sunshiny afternoon of December 16, 2017 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 in their fire truck giving the reindeer including Rudolph a well deserved rest.

The Governors Village Social Committee arranged for this visit and Santa brought lots of candy canes for everyone. Children of all ages 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 never naughty always very well behaved. Santa listened to their wishes and gave each boy and girl a candy cane made by Mrs. Claus. Even a couple of four-legged friends came to see Santa.

 

At each neighborhood 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.

Merry Christmas to all and may all your sweet dreams come true.
