No Kid Should be Without a Gift Christmas Morning

This Friday will mark the end of our Load the Lobby Campaign. Thank you to everyone who has donated good used or new toys already for the less fortunate kids in the area. For almost all of us we have awakened as a kid on Christmas and found a gift under the tree. Unfortunately, there are some kids out there who will look at an empty floor under their tree when they wake up on Christmas morning. This should never happen.

With Load the Lobby, There Is a Lesson to Be Learned for Kids

My opening comments are all leading to the opportunity parents have right now to make this a very special Christmas for their children.

Yes Big Dog, There is a Santa Claus

I think the best part about Christmas is all the memories that go with it. I have a thousand memories of Christmas as a kid, but one that stands out alone. I am not sure of the year, but I was probably 8 years old and my brother was 10. He did his best trying to convince me that there was no Santa.
