Ms. Minerva Graham, owner/operator of the center, had the children dressed for Christmas and ready to visit with Santa. She and her employees did an excellent job of keeping Santa steadily busy and encouraging the few young ones who were a little unsure about the big man in red.

A large part of the decorations for the day were wrapped packages and lots of toys and games stacked up around Santa’s chair. Those toys were collected by Blue Mountain College student athletes for donation to needy families. This was their first year to have a toy drive, and their efforts certainly paid off. Coach “J” and his assistants Joshua Taylor and Jaeden Brown, of Blue Mountain Christian University Powerlifting, delivered the gifts to Rainbow Center.

On the way out of New Albany to another visit, the Claus duo decided to have one of their favorite Southern meals – chicken from George’s. The friendly folks at George’s graciously comped the Claus’s meal, which Santa and Mrs. Claus thought was a very sweet example of Southern hospitality. And, it may have pushed George’s up a few notches on the “nice” list, though we all know George’s chicken is already high on most lists!
