According to the St. Nicolas Center Website: “The true story of Santa
Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the
village of Patara in Asia Minor. At the time the area was Greek and is now on
the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a
devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young.
Obeying Jesus’ words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor,”
Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the
suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra
while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land
for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for
sailors and ships.”
The Museum will also be open Sunday, Dec. 5, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Refreshments include hot apple cider, coffee and Christmas cookies. Local
artist, Dolores Buchheit and Marissa Goerend Krivachek, will be displaying
selected paintings and pottery pieces respectively. Bring your children and
