Santa stopped to pay a visit to the Vittoria Lodge on Sunday, December 13th, where coincidentally lodge members and their children/grandchildren were enjoying a potluck dinner.   After a hearty meal and some quality time with Santa, members headed to the Italian American Cultural Center to participate in the Santa Lucia activities.  Here are some photos of Santa updating his list with some good boys and girls.
