Eighteen-month-old Flora Moon sits on Grandma Kim Flowers’ lap during her special time with Jolly Old St. Nick on Thursday afternoon during the “Cookies & Crafts” with Santa event at The Recovery Station on Clinton Street Road. Each family received a free printed picture of their child or children with Santa and a Christmas book to take home.
Lehla, 3, couldn’t be happier after getting her coloring book from Santa as Jessica Budzinack, an employee of Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, looks on.
Santa’s helpers (the staff at The Recovery Station) are, front, Chris Budzinack; seated from left, Tiffany Downs, Santa Claus, Ginger Burton; standing, Harry Rascoe, Luke Granger, Kat Russell, Jessica Budzinack, Sue Gagne.
