RUTHS­BURG — At the Ruths­burg Com­mu­nity Cen­ter on Sun­day morn­ing, Dec. 18, lo­cal chil­dren stood in line to put in their last minute re­quests to the man in charge — Santa Claus. The com­mu­nity cen­ter hosted break­fast with Santa, and Santa’s many helpers were seen bustling about in the kitchen pre­par­ing lots of tasty break­fast treats for young and old alike.

No­tably, the wish list of must have “toys” tended to­ward all things agri­cul­ture. Will Kraszewski, age 4, asked Santa to bring him a real John Deere trac­tor. A com­bine would be okay too, said Will.

Not to be un­done, Cooper MacGlashan, age 6, from Centreville, also asked for a trac­tor with a wagon, and his brother Max, age 4, put in his re­quest for a 4-wheeler and whoopee cush­ion.

Bryson But­ler from Bar-

clay, hoped Santa might have a lit­tle lever­age over his mom. He was ask­ing Santa for a “real, live snake,” but his mom had al­ready told him, “no way, Jose.”

And fi­nally, maybe Santa’s most orig­i­nal re­quest on Sun­day, came from Dun­can But­ler. “I’d re­ally like a big car set,” said Dun­can, “but I need a blow dryer for my goat!”.

With such well-man­nered, sin­cere chil­dren mak­ing their plea, it is cer­tain that Santa will be vis­it­ing many houses from Queen Anne to Sudlersville and all around Queen Anne’s County, this com­ing Sun­day.
