Mathieu's very first visit with Santa Claus!
Santa had a very busy day at the Falher Regional Recreation Complex on Dec. 1. Many children were there to tell him what they wanted for Christmas and to receive treat bags from his elves. It was also the very first visit for three-month-old Mathieu Michaud, pictured above, with the jolly old fellow. There were other activities for the children, including art and gingerbread crafts, organized by members of Falher and Area Beautification and Leisure Activities Society.
