Santa’s coming to town
Christmas float visiting Hortonville, New London
Wolf River Community Bank will bring Santa through residential areas of Greenville, Hortonville, New London and Shiocton, starting Dec. 1.
The Santa Float allows families to see Santa and Mrs. Claus from the comfort of their own homes.
Local police or firefighters in each municipality will accompany the float through the communities.
Last year was the inaugural voyage of the Wolf River Community Bank Santa Float.
“We received so many encouraging messages about the float last year and a multitude of requests to do this again so we are bringing Santa back,” said Joe Peikert, Wolf River Community Bank president and CEO. “It brought joy to all of us to send some holiday cheer into the neighborhoods we serve. We saw so many smiling faces and excitement from kids of all ages.”
