A local sign that the Christmas season is here is when the Warsaw Breakfast Optimist Club delivers Santa’s House to the county courthouse.
Monday morning, Optimists did just that, putting it at the southeast corner across from the Warsaw City Hall.
It will be at the courthouse lawn for First Friday this week, but then will move to Central Park Saturday to be around all the Christmas lights and for easier access for the rest of the season, according to Santa’s House Committee Chairman Andrew O’Connell.
Santa will start accepting visitors during First Friday at the courthouse starting at 4:30 p.m. Friday. Each kid will get a candy cane during their visit with Ol’ Saint Nick.
Saturday, the house will be open from 4 to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
Hours on other weekends will be: 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 11; 4 to 6 p.m. Dec. 12; 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 13; 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 18; 4 to 6 p.m. Dec. 19; and 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 20.
The Octagon Club, a high school group sponsored by the Optimist Club, will assist, serving as Santa’s elves.
The Breakfast Optimist Club serves the youth of the community. Members get together every Wednesday morning for breakfast and a meeting.
