A Santa for the Ages


My Uncle Bill Connelly was a fun-loving guy. He was a printer by trade, but for several weeks in November and December each year - to untold thousands in the region surrounding Owego NY and Mansfield, PA - he was also known as Santa Claus.

And to my sister and I and many others that remember him...he still is.

Circled in red: Yours truly.
