DOUBLE D~ - Santa Claus, bearing a strong resemblance to Sanford Colquitt, is serving Warm Spdngs folks with holiday surprises as well as mail. Hark, the Postal Angels Bring... Residents Witness Santa Delivering Mail, Surprises Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus...and he not only brings presents on Christmas morning to good little girls and boys, but he also helps good mailmen deliver and pick up mail...on special occasions. To the surprise and excitement of many children, and adults as well, on Dec. 4, the mail on the rural route in Warm Springs was delivered by jolly old Saint Nicholas him- self. This is a custom that Santa began sev- eral years ago, as it helps him observe the location of all the children in the area. The actual mail carrier, Sanford Colquitt, recruited Santa, after much bargaining and promises to also help Santa out with his busy schedule. Mailman Colquitt also supplies a box of money, which he collects throughout the year from stamp sales, to let the children dip in and keep all the money that one little hand can hold. There is also fruit and candy for all who would like to partake. So if you missed this momentous event, here are some photos for you to enjoy from this special day. Remember, this is an annual event, and STARTING THE DAY - San4ord Claus gets his regular mail and surprises ready. :: Santa will again be delivering mail one day ~! next Christmas Season. So tell your.friends : and plan now not to miss it. Students of the Month Honored Hogansville Elementary School has named its stu- dents of the month for December.
