On chilly night, Santa visits Pickerel
space
Even Mr. and Mrs. Claus skirted tradition Tuesday evening on their visit to families and friends at St. Mary Catholic Church in Pickerel.

Instead of the couple roaring onto the church property on the back of a fire truck, they were tucked into a secure and warm Pickerel Fire and Rescue Department ambulance. That was in recognition of the howling winds and skidding temperatures that moved into the area in the past day.

While there were plenty of members of the Pickerel-Pearson Lions Club, the organization that has hosted the visit for years on hand the turnout of parents and youngsters was a little light.

I would hate to think that a little cold and wind scared them away, one of the Lions at the cookie counter said.

Santa and Mrs. Claus smiled broadly as the parents and children approached their chairs and revealed their wish list for the upcoming holiday. Each of the visitors got a gift from the jolly couple, with the help of the Lions Club.

The couple arrive in Antigo tonight as the colorful finale to the annual Christmas parade through downtown starting at 6:30 p.m. The event traditionally draws a big crowd and when it ends, Santa meets friends at a reception at the fire department at Fourth Avenue and Edison Street.
