Now that the weather is getting too hot to endure I figured it was time to
"cool off" and work on the Santa News clippings I have had packed away.
I can't remember if I have told everyone, but my grandfather, H V Carrere
was the Sidney Village Santa for many years. I have a collection of
clippings that he and my grandmother saved from the Tri-Town News from 1968
thru 77 of him as Santa.
Anyway..this is a first attempt to get them online and available to anyone
interested in viewing them.I figured that the children sitting on Santa's
lap in these pictures might see themselves and remember Santa, too, and in
doing so, remember my Grand dad, too.
Here's the link..let me know if it doesn't work for you. I tried it and
There are about 22 photos now with about 55 more to go so check back!
PS Also does anyone recognize the chair he sits in for most of the photos? I
am guessing maybe from the Masonic Hall in town, as he was a Mason,
belonging to Zor Grotto.
