Santa visits Crisfield Elks Lodge

Santa visits Crisfield Elks Lodge
Each year, the Crisfield Elks Lodge treats local children to a Christmas party that includes food, gifts, and of course, a chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas. Below are some of the photos taken at the Elks Lodge. Thanks to all the volunteers who make the annual party possible.

Children await the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus.
