It's hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner. How many of you remember how we used to go down to the fire station in downtown and wait for Santa? I can remember being a little girl and waiting in the old fire station for Santa to come visit, boy were we excited. It felt like the entire town was there, everyone was hanging out in the cold waiting for the jolly fella to show up. When he finally showed up all of us kids would scream and jump around and our Mothers would watch in amazement. I will never forget the joy of getting to meet Santa in the Winlock fire station; those were the good ole days!
