One of the most important parts of Christmas will start this week.
Local non-profit group Mission Overwatch, which aids veterans, seniors and others, is hosting pictures with Santa from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Monday at 3565 Tallant Drive, just off Hurt Bridge Road.
The event will also provide food and festivities, including hay rides, s’mores, coffee and hot chocolate.
Mission Overwatch is requesting donations at the event but members said the amount is up to the donor.
In recent years, Mission Overwatch has provided yard, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roofing and other handyman work for seniors and veterans with disabilities. The group recently took supplies to the Florida panhandle following Hurricane Michael.
