Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

In its Sept. 21, 1897, editorial, the New York Sun newspaper declared, “Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus,” in answer to the question from 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanion, “Is there a Santa Claus?” Indeed, the spirit of Santa is alive and well as the guests and staff of Lake Cove Resort meet for ‘Christmas in July’ as a means to support the Plumas County Sheriff Employee Association’s Needy Kids Christmas Program. Here is the group as they relax  right after a tasty repast of chilidogs, chips and cookies. One big family celebration was the general consensus when describing the event. Lake Cove Resort is located at 3584 Highway 147 on the east shore of Lake Almanor. Photos by Gregg Scott
