Purcellville Police Chief Cynthia A. McAlister and several of her officers led a large delegation going door to door in town apartment neighborhoods this afternoon.
She wasn’t there looking for criminal suspects or delivering bad news. Instead, she asked if Santa and Mrs. Claus could come inside for a visit.
Once doors opened, carolers joined in song and a cadre of volunteers whisked in with bags of gifts, food supplies and treats.
The annual visit to the Purcellville East and Main Street Commons apartments is organized by Sue and Fred Medico, who serve as the town’s Mrs. Claus and Santa for many events each December.
Included among the team of elves heling out this year were Mayor Kwasi Fraser, Councilwoman Karen Jimmerson and Mattie Lassiter.
