Newman Park Christmas Begins with Cookies, Santa and Caroling

Santa (Robert Taylor) Claus greets children at the home of Michael and Becky Friesenhahn.

Newmanistas gathered last evening at the home of Becky and Michael Friesenhahn for cookies and milk. Santa Claus and Father Ken Ducre joined them. After some merry caroling down Altura Avenue, the party ended at House of Pizza.

Santa (NPNA Board member, Robert Taylor) read St. Luke's Christmas story to a large gathering of children and adults. He was followed by All Saints Catholic Community pastor, Father Ken Ducre, who read Xavier Garza's Charro Claus and the Tejas Kid published by Cinco Puntos Press.

Father Ken Ducre reads the Cinco Puntos classic, "Charro Claus".

After Santa gave away bags of fruit and candy to the children, the Yule party-goers went caroling eventually finishing at House of Pizza where they ate and concluded their holiday merriment for the night. Former Newman Park President Lynn Coyle organized this year's caroling.
