    March 2013 meeting
    We are going to be providing Christmas for one or more families in the Inland Empire with gifts, food and a Christmas that they would not be able to have without help. A Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making the delivery's for each of our sponsored families.
     The Santas of the OC and the San Diego Santas will be doing the same thing in their counties also, so let's make this an annual tradition among our groups.
      The 20th Annual Santa Reunion is being set up and volunteers are needed for various positions.  See the
    website for more info.
