Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

DMI Santa House-1Staff Report

With sirens blasting, Santa will arrive in town riding on a fire truck and escorted by the police on Saturday, November 30th at 11:00. He will be in his house listening to the dreams and wishes of children every Friday evening 6:00 to 8:00 and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 to 3:00 until December 22nd. As usual, all children age 12 and under who visit will receive a picture with Santa, a candy cane, a stocking filled with candy and a chance to win one of our weekly drawings of a $50 gift certificate from Walmart along with a dozen cookies from Dolce, all of which is free.

It’s that time of the year when all the behind the scenes work is being done for the DMI Santa House. Numerous elves have been busy working behind the scenes to be ready for the upcoming season. Some elves have been preparing Santa’s house, some have been cutting out over 1,000 little red stockings and others have been sewing them before they are turned over to more elves that will fill them with candy.

In addition to seeing Santa, on two Saturdays there will be entertainment. The First State Harmonettes will entertain us from 10:30 to 11:00 on November 30th and The Christmas Carol Band will perform from 11:00 to 11:30 on December 7th. Come out and enjoy the holiday music while waiting to visit with Santa.

Since Downtown Milford, Inc. is a nonprofit, the organization is dependent upon support from the entire community for both volunteers and funding in order to offer this special experience for our children. If individuals would like to be a part of this worthwhile project and support DMI’s efforts, they are encouraged to call Bev French (424-4465) or Lee Nelson at the DMI Office (839-1180).
