Santa Claus spent a jolly two hours Saturday morning at the Fareway store in downtown Perry, listening to the longings of young and old for Christmas joy.
St. Nicholas’ comportment was as always unimpeachable. No one has a clearer idea of the difference between naughty and nice than he, the judge of Christmas present worthiness.
Ella Stammer of Perry, the 1-year-old daughter of Jordan Martinez and Alex Stammer, made her second annual visit to Santa’s lap Saturday, repeating a performance first given shortly after her birth on Dec. 5, 2018.
Fareway Manager Travis Langrebe reminded customers and Santa visitors that Fareway will clode at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 24 and reopen at 8 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 26.
