Alert the kids! Santa Claus is flying in between appearances around the globe to make a short visit to the Spirit at the Branch gas station and mini mart at Karen’s Deli and Pizza located inside the station Saturday, Dec. 21, at 6 p.m., said General Manager Colten Fletcher.
Children will have a chance to recite their wish list to Santa, after which they will be served free cookies and hot cocoa. It’s a great opportunity to take pictures, too!
