Santa Visits St. Mary’s Home

Santa and Laquesha.

The sound of bells jingling as he walked down the halls gave him away.

The children of St. Mary’s Home knew there was a very important person in the building. Santa visited several classrooms to chat with the children and spread some holiday cheer.

Santa is Ross Wilkins, a database programmer for technology and defense contractor SAIC. Wilkins and several colleagues, including St. Mary’s Trustee Carl M. Albero, dropped off presents for the children and a gift package for the staff.

This was Wilkins’ second December in a row touring St. Mary’s while dressed up as Santa. And yes, the beard is real.
