The Silvercreek subdivision, located at CR 94 and CR 59, had their Holiday Lights with Santa annual event on Friday (Dec. 4).
Resident Jim Zemski represented Santa Claus, since the real Santa is busy in the North Pole. Zemski’s son, Tom, acted as Head Elf. The Zemskis handed out trinkets to all the kids at their own expense, representing the giving attitude of the neighborhood.
“It’s so nice to just go down the road to see Santa,” said one of the residents. “I don’t have to hassle with long lines in the mall and I get to visit with neighbors I haven’t seen in a while.”
Approximately 100 residents came out to the event, which is sponsored every year by the Silvercreek HOA and Community Management Company.
Hundreds of people gathered along Broadway to watch the 2015 Hometown Christmas Parade Saturday (Dec. 5). The weather was beautiful and a larger-than-usual crowd cheered the floats, marching bands and of course, Santa Claus, who arrived in his sleigh.
