A South Florida Santa, with a real beard, has been making Christmas a joy for children of all ages for over 50 years. Santa has made children smile at schools, church functions, YMCA functions, parades, businesses, Christmas parties, nursing homes, and more. Thirteen years ago Santa and Mrs. Claus started a toy drive in conjunction with Gulf Stream Masonic Lodge No. 245 and the Moe and Sally Radio Personalities for 105.5. With the help of the Masonic Lodges and businesses in the community they have raised over 6,000 toys for the Children’s Medical Services and Toys for Tots. Santa, being a retired and decorated law enforcement officer, has seen the need for helping children. He believes children are our future and we should feed them love and affection when they are naughty as well as when they are nice. Santa has worked with youth groups, coached youth sports, and was active in the local school parent’s organizations. In his off time Santa plays banjo and sings with Mrs. Claus and spends time with his family. If it is difficult to get out and see Santa he will arrange a Zoom Meeting with the children and talk with them or even read a story or even make a house call. So invite this Jolly Old Elf into your Christmas Holiday and brighten the Season of Joy.
Mrs. Claus has a love for children that started years ago. She has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and taught school in the Palm Beach County School System for over 37 years, mostly in kindergarten. She was an advisor for Rainbow Girls for several years, served as a parent advisor for middle school and high school band programs, and ran an umpire program for a city youth baseball program. Mrs. Claus attended college on a singing scholarship and she has sung with Santa, who plays banjo, for several years. Together they have been involved in a couple local bands and have entertained children in local schools. In her spare time she loves to read, make Christmas cookies, run Santa’s business, and spend time with the family.
