Elder Mary Patsy sits on Santa's lap and shares her Christmas list with him and Mrs. Claus during their brief visit to the Eskimo village of St. Mary Nov. 30 as part of the Alaska National Guard's Operation Santa. This is the 45th year the Alaska National Guard's Operation Santa has been spreading Christmas joy to remote villages around the state. The whole village showed up to visit with Santa and, with the help of The Salvation Army and other organizations, got a gift.
