Santa Claus made a quick visit to the children of Eureka Dec. 24 at Raines Market. On Christmas Eve even, then a fast trip back to the North Pole for his big adventure.

Santa listened to Christmas wishes, gave out candy canes, and had his photo taken with local children and adults. Helping him were local elves Strider Raine and Storm Raine.

Raine’s Market also announced the winners of their Christmas Dinner Raffle. The three lucky winners were Joe Swanson, Kim Archeleta, and Bob Burnham.

Happy New Year from the Raines family as well.
