Thomaston — Jolly old Santa Claus will be making an appearance at the Williams-Brazier post 37, 37 Watts Lane, Dec. 6. Accompanying Santa will be Mrs. Claus, one of her few appearances away from the North Pole. Military veterans that served in Germany with their families may remember that on the morning of Dec. 6, German children found that Nikolaus, known by Americans as Santa Claus, left sweets, and maybe a small gift, in their shoes. When the United States began to allow families to join their spouses after World War II, Nikolaus began to visit the children of American families at the various military bases and homes. Here, he found stockings to fill instead of shoes. He has been visiting American families ever since.

Doors open at 6 p.m., at the Post 37 Hall. Treats will be available for all and, while they last, each child will receive a small bag of goodies from Santa and Mrs. Claus. There will be a photo booth set up showing the front of Santa’s main workshop at the North Pole. A child can stick their head in a window and have their parents take a photo of them.

In addition, a photo will be taken of the visiting children, sitting with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Photos can be picked up the Post 37 Friday, Dec. 13, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. They can be picked up at the same time Saturday as well. There will be no fees charged to visit Santa’s Workshop but a small donation would be welcome, which will benefit future activities of the Post 37 Social Activities Committee.
