Despite the delay imposed by the earthquake, the arrival of Santa and the tree lighting at the park was still a wonderful event, full of snow and good cheer. Thank you to all who came to assist Santa, who had to leave his reindeer and sled behind this year. It didn't seem to matter to all the kids who came to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas, though. Rotarians and their families then gathered at the Gamble's home for a fireside and a spirited gift exchange.
