Due to congested airspace during this busy holiday season, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be a little later than planned tonight: they will get to the Perry Street Cafe at 7 p.m.
The Christmas tree lighting and decorating gets underway at 5:30 p.m. The Perry Street Cafe is collecting Toys For Tots - please bring a new and unwrapped toy for the donation bin.
Also, the South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association is sponsoring a sock and boot drive to help cold students at Grant Elementary School - there will be a bin at the tree tonight - boots are really badly needed in this weather.
Donations or not, everyone is welcome - the cafe will be serving hot beverages and once we’ve said hello to Santa, a group of neighbors will go caroling in the neighborhood. See you tonight.
