Children, manor residents excited to see Santa Claus
Santa’s first visit to Imperial Manor last Friday brought in scads of children of all ages to share their Christmas wishes while parents captured the photo moment.
Assisting Santa were two manor employees who “wrangled” the 78 youngsters who came to see Santa Claus.
Leatha Snyder of Imperial, long time medication and restorative aide, was dressed as an elf. She helped to maintain order and handed out candy canes to the children.
Michael Eatmon of Benkelman is employed as a cook at the manor. He was dressed head to toe as Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. He handed out candy canes, as well, and helped calm a few discontented little visitors.
