    Saw this info from Rotary “Many organizations on St. John are joining together to welcome Santa to the Cruz Bay Ferry Dock at approximately 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve. All are welcome to attend.

    Those would like to be part of the effort to welcome Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves, please contact Rotary Club of St. John members: Celia Kalousek (St. John Community Foundation), Chad Prentice (Team Caneel) or BJ Harris (St. John Properties).
