The Jolly Old Elf from the North Pole will get some help in taking care of District 13 children this year when Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) and the Fairdale Community Club once again host “Santa Land” on Thursday, December 17th.

“This is a special time of year for children and families,” says Welch. “Santa Land is one of the great partnership efforts between my office and the Fairdale Community Club to help everyone enjoy this wonderful time of year.”

The Fairdale Playtorium will be magically transformed into Santa Land on December 17th. The event will get underway from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The Playtorium is located at 10616 West Manslick Road.

In 2008, more than 200 children in the area participated. This year, Santa will be on hand for kids to get pictures and entertainment will be provided by the Step N Out Dance Studio which is also located in the heart of Fairdale

Councilwoman Welch provides funding for the event which is coordinated by the Fairdale Community Club. Many Fairdale businesses along with Welch’s office are also involved in Santa land.

“When you consider these tight economic times, it is wonderful to see so many people with the Community Club as well as businesses in our area take the time to make sure children and their families enjoy this season of giving,” says Welch.

The event is free and open to children and their parents or guardians.
