Santa made a special appearance at the Holley-Navarre Elks Lodge Sunday afternoon, where nearly 40 local kids participated in the club’s 20th annual Christmas party.
The lodge, which is two members shy of 200, focuses on helping local residents and Sunday’s event was no exception.
Elk’s member Ray Yantch said the party is hosted for underprivileged kids who may not receive much during Christmas. Santa gave the children presents and gift certificates, and families received gift cards from Winn Dixie for either a ham or turkey for Christmas day.
Kids also enjoyed pizza, which was donated by Domino’s, and Elks members baked cupcakes and cookies for each child.
