Santa Claus made an extra-special visit to Melaco Sisters Hardware & Supplies to spread holiday cheer and pose with children and family pets for professional photographs on Dec. 17.

The event was a community-building experience for all who participated. The Melaco team partnered with local businesses for a magical experience. Simply Exquisite Events & Designs crafted a winter wonderland backdrop, and Gabryell Forse Photography and Naturally You by Sugar provided professional photography services and digital prints. Wild Child’s Eats also offered a variety of delicious food options for purchase throughout the event

We’re grateful to have been a part of such a joyous occasion that not only brightened the spirits of those who attended but also strengthened the bonds within our community.”
