Listening intently to the holiday wishes of Stephanie Grams during the annual Christmas dinner party of Garrett Mentors Inc. was none other than Santa himself, who took an hour or so out of his extremely busy schedule to attend the event, held last Wednesday at the Oak Park Church of the Brethren. Scores of children in the program were each given a similar opportunity to chat with the "jolly old elf," and each was accompanied by his or her adult mentor. Stephanie's mentor is Jean Remmy. See today's issue for the complete story and additional photos from the event, all taken by mentor Don Coble. To see today's entire issue, click on "Your Virtual Newspaper" above.
