For the second year in a row, the residents on Sterling Road raised funds for social services while they attracted onlookers from all over the state to come and enjoy their light display, “Santa’s Runway.”
The neighborhood gets into the holiday spirit, lining the road with lights, creating ‘Santa’s runway.” The homes are beautifully decorated and the residents donate their time meeting with visitors, handing out candy canes and Christmas ornaments and directing traffic.
This year, the organizers of Santa’s Runway, Zoli Szabo and Joe McDonald, presented a check to the Human Services Department for $4,600. These funds will be used to support the local food pantry and social services. “We are delighted that the community comes together to enjoy the light display and to give back to their community at the same time,” stated Director of Human Services Michele Jakab. “We are so grateful for the donation.”
