Mayor David G. Tate makes arrangements with Santa Claus to make a priority visit to the City of Hollister.
The Santa Train that was scheduled to arrive in Hollister on Sunday, December 9 was cancelled due to extreme ice and weather conditions in northern Missouri.
The City of Hollister is the largest stop on the Santa Train line.
Mayor Tate says…"the children of Hollister have had a special visit from Santa Claus every year for the past 14 years by way of the railroad. The children cannot be disappointed…so therefore, I contacted the North Pole for Santa's schedule and asked that he make a very special stop in Hollister."
According to Assistant City Administrator, Vonnie Mathiesen, Western Taney County Fire District will provide transportation for Santa to arrive at the Hollister Train Depot on Sunday, December 16, 2007 at 3:00 pm. Children will be able to get their Christmas wishes to Santa from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
The Hollister Area Chamber of Commerce will provide holiday goodie bags.
