More than three dozen
residents turned out along Turkey Point Road Sunday evening December 5 to
donate toys for needy children. The toys were collected by Santa himself
who rode here in a Woodland Beach Fire Department fire engine. Santa posed
for pictures with the island children who came to donate toys, and
rewarded them with candy canes. Our contributions to this worthwhile toy
drive were a wonderful way to start the holiday season. Special thanks to
Paul Mills who coordinated with the Woodland Beach Fire Department on
Santa?s arrival schedule and signs to mark Santa?s stops on Turkey Point
Island. Also big thanks to Kirk Litton for the flyer on Operation Santa
that we distributed to residents in advance of Santa?s visit.
Perhaps this toy drive will become an annual event and we can look forward
to even bigger participation in 2005.
