Santa ushers in holiday season

The weather outside was frightfully cold, but hundreds were on hand to warmly welcome Santa Claus to historic Old Town on December 5. Those in attendance enjoyed s’mores and hot chocolate, favorite holiday tunes performed by local elementary students, craft activities, and some face-to-face time with the jolly ol’ elf himself.

It didn’t rain on the Suwanee Day parade September 19 – although it certainly did before and after the traditional kick-off to Suwanee’s annual celebration of community. While Gertrude Thomas, who has sold peanut brittle at all 26 Suwanee Days, declared the 2009 festival the wettest ever, it was by no means a washout: Attendance was better than expected (considering weather conditions) and attitudes were decidedly sunny.
