Santa Claus came to Lakeview on Tuesday. He "arrived at Black Cap by helicopter," (the tallest peak overlooking town) then was delivered to the downtown square by the fire department. It was a great, free event held after dark that brought out ~75 of Lakeview's hardiest denizens. Really cool that it was noncommercial, but that also meant limited hot drinks and only a super tiny Christmas tree lighting. Dominic liked it all, though, including the Christmas carols played by the high school tuba section! He did great with Santa Claus, but probably didn't tell him that he really wants bath toys and a GI Joe with the action grip for Christmas!
