Santa Claus is coming to town

Santa Claus will come to town on Dec. 11.


The St Joseph-Stanton Fire Wife Tribe along with the help of the St. Joseph- Stanton Fire Department will be hosting the annual Holly Jolly Christmas event at the St Joseph-Stanton Fire House.


The event kicks off with a pancake breakfast at 8 a,m. until 10 a.m. The breakfast costs $8 for adults and $5 for kids ages five to 12. Children four and under are free. Ten percent of the proceeds from the breakfast will go towards the St. Joseph Splash Pad.


Santa will arrive at to the fire station at 10 a.m. and each family will receive a color-coded pass. The pass colors will be announced so families can participate in activities while waiting to see Santa. Santa will be available for visits until noon.


Those activities include cookie decorating, coloring, Christmas music by the high school band, a Christmas movie and a hot chocolate station.


Fire Wife member Vickie Reese said the group will have more than 350 cookies to decorate.


The group decided not to do a Santas Workshop this year because of space considerations due to COVID-19.
