Yes Santa Claus, there is a Virginia, and she knows who lives in her town. I went to the Verona Post Office today to mail the last of the MyVeronaNJ.com holiday cards and the clerk asked me if I had forgotten a package on my last visit. I hadn’t, but a package to “Elizabeth” wasn’t going to get to its destination without a little luck. And luck there was: One of the names on the gift tag was the same as one of my kids, an unusual Russian name in these parts. I seemed to remember that there had been a child by that name in Forest Avenue School when my mom helped in the library and called the school secretary to confirm. Yup, and all the other names on the package matched the family, which has been alerted that it is waiting for them at the Post Office.
Merry Christmas, Elizabeth.
