Memories are Santa’s gift
December 27, 2000
The very being of Santa Claus is about being good and of giving to others. At least that is how Gary Browne sees it. Browne has portrayed Santa Claus locally for about 18 years as close as he can figure. The first time he handed out candy canes to a couple of children and adults on the steps of City Hall, it didn’t occur to him to start counting the years he would be Santa. But 18 is close, and he can stop counting. Browne is hanging up his Santa hat, because of health reasons. That’s all that could stop him, for he still fits the job description perfectly.
Looking forward to new year
