Kirkpatrick moved compliance drive throughs to Tuesday.
PJE has trimmed the trees on either side of the Springstone bridge.
Santa visits will be capped at the first 50 people to sign-up and pay. Will be using Venmo to pay this year. Prices will be raised to $30.00. This is the first increase ever. This will help mitigate the rising cost of Santa and the Carriage. We hope to complete the visits in 3 hours this year.
