….one of the favorite things is the twinkle in the eyes and excitement expressed by children who receive a gift from Santa and friends.  Those in WesTen who went the extra mile to see that twinkle, and love on our children, include Portland Avenue Baptist Church and Whiz Kids who made sure every Buchannan Elementary student had a gift; Melrose Recreation Center along with WesTen had a specific gift for each of their students; Five Below at Westgate Marketplace who gave each Melrose student a gingerbread house and Santa hats; and the many other individuals and groups we just don’t know the details about.  Thank you and….

Merry Christmas to all!
