BARNEGAT, NJ - While a group of business professionals gathered together to enjoy some cheer at the Barnegat/Waretown Chamber of Commerce meeting, in walked an amazing couple. His gray beard didn't stand a chance at masking the smile on his lips and in his eyes. Meanwhile, her coiffed hair and attire gave every clue as to role she brings to Barnegat's holiday celebrations. While Mr. and Mrs. Claus dropped by for some sweet talk, they left soon after to busy up for what's up next in Barnegat.
On Sunday, December 8th, the jolly couple take a few minutes out of their busy schedule to celebrate Santa Sunday at the Mariners Masonic Lodge from 2:00 to 4:00 Visitors are requested to bring an unwrapped toy valued at no less than $10. These donated toys will be distributed to less fortunate children in the community by the Mariners Lodge.
If you're waiting for Santa to hit your neighborhood, here's the schedule supplied by Barnegat's Fire Department. Of course, Santa's always watching so make sure you're on the "nice" list!
