Armed with only a smart phone for navigation and a sleigh full of presents, Santa’s Helpers from Tacoma Narrows Rotary club delivered Christmas wishes to 5 local families last night.  At this time of year, the local Rotary club adopts several families who need a little help making this Christmas special.  It is not the largest project the club does, but it is one of our most important ones.  President Scott Seitz said "The best present I purchased this year was for the seven year old boy that wanted a Hot Wheel set. He is going to love it.”  Mrs. Santa (Eileen Oye) said it best: "On a cold winter night, we are warmed by the opportunity to bring some joy to others for Christmas."
