Santa Claus visits YMCA’s preschoolers

Members of the YMCA’s preschool class got a treat Monday, Dec. 2, when Santa Claus paid an early visit to get the children’s wish lists for Christmas.

Santa had each child sit on his lap and tell him what he wanted under the Christmas tree Dec. 25.

Santa Claus made a note of the preschoolers wishes and told them to make sure to leave plenty of cookies and milk out for him Christmas Eve.

&uot;I’m on a diet – an ‘eat-as-many-cookies-as-possible’ diet,&uot; he said. &uot;I’ve still got room in my Santa suit to fill!&uot;

YMCA Asst. Director Amanda Phillips and preschool teachers Lakesha Dunklin and Diane Katzev gave Santa their lists as well.

Each child had his picture taken with Santa by Mack Russell. The YMCA offers a special thanks to Allen Stephenson. Santa will appear this Thursday in the Christmas parade.
