• Santa Makes a Special Stop in Wildomar

The Elks Lodge in Wildomar does many good things for the community, and tonight was no exception. They arranged for Santa, and the missus, to stop by and bring some gifts to a couple of Wildomar kids.

Riot and Rhylee, who both attend Wildomar Elementary, only thought they were going out to dinner. They were brought to the Elks Lodge by their grandparents, Kevin and June.

After a few introductions, and Hershey's Kisses, they found a couple of coloring books and went straight to work on them. 

Little did they know that some visitors from the North Pole came just to see them.

It took them a few moments to grasp the idea that the man in the red suit was there for them. In other words, they were a bit on the shy side at first, as they continued on coloring nonchalantly.

A subgroup within the Elks, known among themselves as The Dirty Dozen, sought out a family that could use a boost at Christmas.

They provide them with presents, a traditional Christmas dinner, a visit from Santa Claus. 
The eyes tell the story in this picture. ☺

This year's family was found with the assistance of Mayor Bridgette Moore and Think Together's April Watkins.

“A good conscience is a continual Christmas.” 

— Benjamin Franklin, 1706-1790

Based on Ben's maxim (and my math), it's safe to say that Wildomar Rap experiences a continual Christmas at least 75-80% of the time.
