The residents of Essentia Health's Lincoln Park Assisted Living were serenaded by 14 students and teachers from Mahube's Head Start program Friday morning -- after which they received a visit from Santa Claus himself.


After treating the Lincoln Park residents to an entertaining medley of holiday carols and other songs, including "The Wheels on the Bus," and "The Reindeer Pokey," the students gathered around Santa to receive some candy cane gifts, and to pose for photos.
