I got to see a lot of Santa's "helpers" while out in the Tri Cities in the last few weeks. I spent the most time with Bob Miller, principal of Haines Middle School in St. Charles, who has visited Mooseheart for the last nine years.
Miller brought with him a gift for every child, paid for by various Haines fundraisers, from their list to Santa and presented them in the school's library. He said he started the gift program in honor of his father, who was an orphan. The Christmas spirit is indeed alive and well and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
