Early Santa Delivers to South Bass Island

Santa Claus made an early appearance on South Bass Island this afternoon, courtesy of the Put-in-Bay Recreation Committee.  Santa distributed chocolate and gifts with the help of three local elf-apprentices and a navigator.  He was chauffeured by the Put-in-Bay Volunteer Fire Department and accompanied by a gift carriage, security vehicle, and press automobile.  Family members, alerted to Santa’s arrival in their neighborhood by the sounds of siren and horns, gathered gleefully to experience the generous and caring gift-giving event.
