Santa’s a very busy man this season making toys for all good girls and boys, so don’t miss your chance for a visit! Please be sure to bring your camera for photos of your family. Light refreshments will be provided, and entertainment by the Eagle Ridge Middle School Chorus, Eagle Ridge Jazz Band and the Briar Woods High School Chorus will make this a most enjoyable evening.
