This is the biggest landmark in Joppatowne, since Royal Farms took over the Highs Store on Joppatowne Road.

Little Richie Bennett was in tears when he found out he could not have Breakfast with Santa at the Joppatowne Lions Club. His next door neighbor Teresa Torba Stepp saw how upset he was. So she told little Richie, “Richie, I have a three year old granddaughter, so I am well connected to the North Pole".

Teresa is an accomplished artist, so she has that creative side of the brain. Her husband stuffed another idea into her stocking, “Whatever we do we can’t spend money”.

Without spending a dime and leaning on the generosity of others, everything was donated. From lumber, to lights, to decorations and of course Santa. Y

You are invited to attend Santa’s Workshop from 4 to 7 p.m. this Sunday on Kershaw Court in Joppatowne.

Little ones will get a gift, while supplies last. Doggies will get treats and free Hot Chocolate for all. Please remember to bring a canned good so that we can help out the new food bank that opened up at the Joppatowne Christian Church. Best part? It's all free!
