There will be fun for the whole family starting at 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 10. Santa is coming to Wilmot to visit with all his friends. The jolly old elf’s visit is jointly sponsored by the Wilmot Community Association (WCA) and the Wilmot Public Library.

Santa’s first stop – from 3 to 4 p.m. – will be at the WCA Red Barn at 64 Village Road. The children will visit with Santa and share their wish lists. John Swindell, a professional photographer based in Wilmot, will be on hand to take complimentary photographs. Santa will be bringing a couple of elves with him to help the children with a holiday craft project. In addition, there will be cookies and cocoa and the Fondtones will lead a sing-along. Mary Kulacz, WCA board member and program coordinator, says, “We are delighted that Santa has accepted our invitation to visit the children of Wilmot. It promises to be a very special afternoon.” A big thank you in advance to Santa, his elves, and the Fondtones.

Santa will then travel to the Wilmot Public Library, 11 North Wilmot Road. Starting at 4:30 p.m., the children will have the chance to see a firetruck and make an ornament to decorate the Library’s tree. Mrs. Claus will join Santa and read Clement Moore’s “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Michelle Travis, the new director of the Wilmot Public Library, promises a special treat. She says, “After the story, Santa will dig into his magical sack and every child will receive a wonderful literary surprise.”
