Every year the Bayview Chamber of Commerce sponsors a Christmas for the young and young of heart at the Bayview Community Center. This year was no different and it seems all those who attend enjoyed an evening of Christmas carols plus a visit with Santa before he embarked on his long journey. Three of his helpers, Judy, Jenny, and Ted, started the evening with carols. All gathered around the outside Christmas tree while waiting for Santa to arrive, the lighting of the festive tree created a collective exclamation of joy from those present.

                Santa does not always need a chimney to come to visit, so he arrived with ease to spend the evening talking to the children gathered for the occasion. Listening carefully, Santa made note of Christmas wishes, to include requests from those who are young at heart! A wish for new Mercedes was on one of these ladies Christmas list                                           

         All of the children received a small gift from Santa, the children taking delight in Santa’s presence on this night before Christmas.


            So this is the tale of Christmas at the Center, another successful event! Many thanks to the absolutely awesome volunteers who helped make this a success: Santa of course, Marsha, Ken and Marilyn, Jamie, Jim, and Alex, Dennis and Sue, Judy and Dave, Ted and Bev, Jenny and Bob, Tom and Jackie, Chauncey, and many others. We all enjoyed the cookies, coffee, and cocoa!
