Santa plans to be at the house Dec. 11, 6-8 p.m., Dec. 15, 2-5 p.m., Dec. 19, 6-8 p.m.; and Dec. 21, 4:30-7 p.m.

Santa's elves are getting some help from the folks at the Vernon County Ambulance District, who are fixing up the house he'll be using when he visits Vernon County on several occasions between now and Christmas.

The VCAD, in a cooperative effort with the Nevada/Vernon County Chamber of Commerce, also will be hosting Santa this year. He'll be spending time in the little house, which will be set up on the Square. Commissioners granted permission to place Santa's Nevada dwelling on the concrete near the William Joel Stone memorial; and Santa plans to be there after the Christmas parade, which begins at 6 p.m., Dec. 8.

"We'll be at the parade, too, and if people want to bring toys or donations for the drive to the parade with them, we'll be glad to take them, so they don't have to make a special trip," McKenzie said.

Santa also plans to be at the house on the Square Dec. 11, 6-8 p.m., Dec. 15, 2-5 p.m., Dec. 19, 6-8 p.m.; and Dec. 21, 4:30-7 p.m. If additional slots in Santa's schedule open up, he could be there at other times as well; additions to his schedule will be announced when available.
