Ramona Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3783, with its Men’s and Ladies auxiliaries, delivered toys, food and clothes to the Active Duty Military Housing in Ramona. The post adopted 14 families this year with a total of 30 children. While Santa and his elves visited the adopted families to hand out their gifts, other post members spread out additional donated toys to be distributed to the children in other families. The Ramona Community Brass Band played Christmas carols in the parking lot while the children and their families selected toys. Sleigh driver Bill Bryant and his wife, Judy, added to the festivities by filling their motorized sleigh with VFW members for the event. Red-nosed Rudolph and friends “pull” the sleigh from the VFW post to the military housing.
