On Christmas Eve, Santa Claus took a break to promote recycling efforts in Nelson County. Frances Gable, Nelson County waste management coordinator, said this is the second year Jolly Old Saint Nick has visited the Rockfish Recycling Center in Afton. Robert Kirt dresses up as Santa and his wife, Jane, as Mrs. Claus.
“It is to promote recycling. The kids love it. Santa gives out candy canes,” Gable said in an email on Dec.26.
