Years ago, Graham had a tradition of Santa Claus greeting children on the Downtown Square, asking them for their Christmas wish lists and handing out candy.

When I was asked to choose a Santa Claus for Graham, of course, I chose Dean (Singleton) because of his gorgeous blue eyes.

He served the community in that capacity for several years, and he was the best Santa Claus that Graham ever had. I am so proud of his success, and I think a lot of him.
