Saint Nick himself made a special pre-Christmas appearance at
St. John the Evangelist's annual Breakfast with Santa
fundraiser event. But instead of arriving in his bright red
sleigh, he arrived in a yellow helicopter, a first in the
event's history. The Air Care four team from Front Royal
escorted the "jolly old elf" in their chopper and the landing
site was prepared behind the school by Warrenton Fire
Children and parents of all ages lined up outside the
perimeter and waved as the craft with its special passenger
came into view against the bright morning sun. After
disembarking from the chopper and greeting the good boys and
girls that ran to meet him, Santa joined the school for
breakfast in the school. During the breakfast children lined
up for pictures with Santa, while others participated in
games, crafts and cake walks.
"What makes this a great event is the spirit of Christmas
that the community brings to it," said Langdon Johnston,
event organizer and parent. "Everyone here working the event
today is a volunteer."
How's this for an entrance? "St. Nick" arrives at St.
John the Evangelist's annual Breakfast with Santa...flying.
