I Saw Santa In
Not only do I believe,
but I saw Santa, yesterday in Chichester. He came to the police
department to get directions to some new roads in town. I am not
sure if there are children on those new roads, or there are elderly
folks that have written to Santa also. He looked exhausted but he
was so excited about his upcoming trip to deliver goodies to all the
deserving girls and boys. He was in regular clothes, and said he was
getting his suit cleaned. I could tell by his belly and that pudgy
little nose of his that it was
him, in person. Imagine my excitement!
He also thanked me for
doing the little that the Chichester Police Department Association
does, by accepting applications, and getting information together. He
said every little bit of assistance helps. So I guess we work hard, and
Applications still being
accepted until December 15, 2017. The list of volunteers is still
monetary donations are
still being accepted. Thank you all for your many acts of kindness.
