Santa Claus was seen in Rockville checking the kids as they got off the school bus last week. They must have been good for each got a present thanks to the Rockville Lions Club. Santa thought since it was Thursday, he’ll check out the Rockville Hand Quilters at the church. It was a good thing he did for the ladies who made afternoon coffee were absent and the rest didn’t know how to make coffee with the fancy dangle coffee maker. Santa steped right up and made coffee, the ladies shared their treats and informed Santa they had been good and enjoyed presents too. Santa left wishing us a Merry Christmas, Mrs. Claus was driving the vehicle.
