It’s not just kids that get a kick out of a visit from Santa.

The big guy in red, along with his helpers, showed up at the Rocky Mountain Village to surprise residents just before Christmas.

His reasoning for showing up so early was that he would just be far too busy with gifts for the children on Christmas Eve so he wanted to see the residents at the Village early.

Alice Booth, along with a few other concerned citizens, also took time to collect gifts for the seniors living in the Rocky Mountain Village. Every year an afternoon is set aside to wrap each gift to make sure every resident gets a surprise.
