Spiffing up for Santa

Just in the nick of time, a team of young painters was dispatched to Santa's workshop and North Pole post office in Burlington Park. The DiCosla Group in Hinsdale provided the much-needed paint along with painters Guilliamme Botha, Christopher Fry and Ernest Zhang. Santa will be on duty to kick off the holiday season Friday night for the Christmas Walk, which begins at 5 p.m. Please turn to Page 17 for complete details. (Jim Slonoff photo)
