GREEN — Christmas came early for some children in Green, thanks to the Green Kiwanis Santa Delivery Dec. 22.

The annual program includes a visit from Santa and a small gift for children of parents who drop off a wrapped and tagged gift during a collection day.

One of Santa’s stops included a visit to the Szaraz home. Shown above is 4-month-old Victoria Szaraz and her parents, Brandon and Jennifer Szaraz, with Santa, played by Phil Franze, of Akron, and his elves, played by Erin Ross, 15, and Ryan Callahan, 17, both of Green.

Shown at right is 3-year-old Leandra Clark, of Tallmadge, thanking Santa for her gift.

Santa also is shown below, with Tyler Babyak on his lap as Tyler’s mother, Krista Babyak, and 3-year-old twins, Trenton and Taryn, watch.
