Socially Distant Santa Selfies at the Fort Sherman Chapel December 5, 2020 from 11a-2p

Here is what this event will look like:

Families will line up outside the Fort Sherman Chapel in socially distant lines. An intake table is at the bottom of the steps where donations are encouraged. Elves will provide a form for parents to fill out with personalized information regarding each child.
Families enter one at a time. A volunteer at the top of the steps motions each family in. Before each child enters, Santa will be briefed about the child(ren) by the elf for a more personalized experience.
Children will be positioned 6' from Santa and parents have an opportunity to photo with their own cell phones.
Families exit to the back.
Live music and light refreshments are provided.
