Agnes Michon, aka Mrs. Santa Claus, has been an inspiration to hundreds at this time of year. She buys, repairs, makes, knits, and wraps hundreds of gifts every year in support of the Lions Toy Drive. Her entire house is transformed into a Christmas wonderland with lights, moving features and music. Anything to do with the season is on display, and as she admits, only half is on display this year. She tried her best, but is recovering from a broken rib.
The Espanola Lions Club appreciates her dedication and loving support for those in need.
“Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus,”… but Mrs. Claus lives in McKerrow.
