Saturday spaghetti dinner to aid local Santa in recovery

April 3, 2009

Chillicothe Gazette

Excerpt:

Dan Clary has had a lot of children sit on his lap over the years, but medical issues kept that lap empty this year.

In November, the local Santa Claus had quadruple bypass surgery, followed by other medical issues that have kept him from working, said Clary's close friend, Hank Hackworth.

"He's been Santa Claus for over 30 years. This past Christmas was the first time he couldn't do it, and it about broke his heart," Hackworth said.

....

After a recent visit, Hackworth discovered Clary has been struggling financially and decided to organize a benefit to help out his friend. So, from 1-6 p.m. Saturday at the Scioto Township Hall, there will be an all-you-can eat spaghetti dinner with all proceeds going to Clary.

Area restaurants and businesses have donated supplies for the dinner, which will feature spaghetti, meatballs, salad, applesauce and garlic bread. There will be three raffles for the following: a freezer-ready hog from Just Meats, a kayak from Paddle Power Boat Shop and a 50/50 raffle.

I know how much some of you Santa's would like to chow down on this dinner and help out. Short notice and distance will no doubt keep you away.

Prayers will help Dan. Thanks.

Santa Dennis,

Thanks for taking the ball and running with this. Obviously, you are a lot closer to the situation then I or most others. Thanks for being the middle man and thanks for your support. Maybe I can ask you to follow up on this as I assume there may not be another story.

To others who have decided to help this Santa, what can any of us say. THANK YOU! The spirit of Christmas and the generosity of Santa lives on.

No trouble at all, Santa Dan is about 25 miles from me. I had not known of his hardships till you posted the article Santa Edson, thank you. His illness brought many inquiries and work to me and other Santas last year. So I am Happy to help. Santa Dan Clary is a well loved figure in the area.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

    • Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas
      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      ChristmasWeekly.com
      September 7, 2017

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

    • Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas
      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
