Santa plans local visit

Staff report

BOTKINS — Santa Claus will be visiting Apple Farm Service as he prepares for his Christmas Eve visit to local homes.

Santa will be at the Botkins and Mechanicsburg locations on Dec. 2 and at Covington and West College Corner, Indiana, locations on Dec. 9. He will be at the locations from 9 a.m. to noon. Santa will pose for photos with children and their parents/grandparents.

Apple Farm Service is speechless to have Santa this year. “There are thousands of malls and parades he could have visited, and he chose us! We are tickled!” says Apple Farm Service marketing director Kent Holmes.

To celebrate the big man’s visit, Apple Farm service is offering free create-your-own mason jar lid ornaments, hot chocolate, hot cider, and Christmas cards with your picture of Santa. They are also giving away a free 1:16 scale farm toy at each location.
