A full budget presentation can be found on the park district’s website.
12 Nights of Santa Claus
The big man in red was spotted yesterday night around Naperville as part of Team Doyle Husley’s 12 Nights of Santa Claus. Each night the mortgage team will select a local nonprofit for community members to support, and Santa will also have a local star guiding his sleigh. The crew will be spreading the holiday cheer to different neighborhoods each night, and to follow along you can use the #TDHSanta.
