Calling all kids! Santa Claus will be answering your questions about Christmas, the naughty list, reindeer, life at the North Pole and more next Thursday as he participates in a live chat on LJWorld.com. The chat begins after school at 4 p.m. and will last for roughly 30 minutes.
Parents, now is the time to shoo the kids away from the paper.
Joining the Journal-World for this online chat is “Santa” Bob Beebe, a longtime Lawrence resident who has played Santa for nearly 30 years. Each year, he picks a charity to benefit from his numerous appearances in Lawrence, and this year all donations he receives will go toward a brightly painted Van Go Mobile Arts bench at Kansas University’s Schiefelbusch Speech-Hearing-Language Clinic. Donations should be mailed to Van Go, 715 N.J., Lawrence 66044, in care of Santa Bob project.
