The “12 Days of Christmas with Mr. and Mrs. Claus”

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to everyone who came out to visit with us this year. It was a great event once again. The people of Maricopa are awesome and we are so blessed to be able to call this town home.

I am super excited to announce we continue to break the record from the previous year. This year we had the wonderful opportunity to see 930 kids. This is up from the 825 kids we saw last year.

As our 9th year comes to a close I want to once again thank our sponsors. Orbitel Communications for the donation of the toys each kid received. The Yocum's for their donation of the candy canes each child received. Maricopa Pool & Spa Service for the great lights and decorations in all three yards. Jennifer Kacprowicz and her husband Jonathan for the great commercial and our website. To the AZ Fyrestorm Cheer girls for the welcome back to Maricopa and of course for the Elves who helped out more than they will ever realize. Also to City Property Management Company for handing out hot chocolate on the night we arrived, H&N Landscape for handing out popcorn and to Our Lady of Grace Youth Choir for an evening of wonderful carols. And a big thank you to the City of Maricopa Fire Department for delivering the Claus' safely to the South Pole. Also to Howard Waggner for all the wonderful pictures and time spent as the official photographer for us. You also seem to be able to get the good side of us.

But I want to do a HUGE big shout out to Ken Bobertz and Bridgit Donohue for being extremely instrumental in getting everything set up and running and continue to do so throughout the entire 12 Days of Christmas event. Without these two I'm not even sure it would have happened this year.

Last but not least the wonderful friends of Maricopa. You guys came out in droves this year to not only see Mr. & Mrs. Claus but to help support our desires to make sure there are less children here in Maricopa that will not have to go without at Christmas time ensure there aren't less parents who have to explain why to their eagerly waiting kids why there won't be anything. Thank you.

Thank you again and rest assured plans for the 10th Anniversary of the 12 Days of Christmas event are already in the works. God willing we will see everyone next year as we arrive back in Maricopa the day after Thanksgiving. We hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Christmas and a prosperous New Year. God bless each and everyone.    

Hope to see you all very soon!!
Mr. and Mrs. Claus
