If you were on Highway 27 Wednesday and wondered who the kids were on the police escorted school bus through town? Well it was the 100 area children being served by the local Santa in Uniform program. Santa in Uniform began as a small event serving only a fhandful of children in its first years according to Summerville Police Chief Stan Mosely.

Each year his department sponsors the program and it now serves 100 children in need and requires a bus to take them on a Christmas Shopping Spree. The department also buys gifts for children too young to make the trip. They also feed the youngsters. The Summerville Fire Department and other city departments also help out with the event and fundraising..
