Re Member number xxxxxxxxxxxx


I just wanted to share a story with you and having been a teacher in my previous life I thought I would put it in a format that might be used for a company newletter.  I was very impressed with what I saw at the store this past week.

Santa is not due to fly to Richmond until December 25th but recently he and his wife made a detour to the West End of Richmond to visit the Costco Store on Broad Street in Richmond, Virginia.

Enticed to stay for a few hours, Mr. and Mrs. Claus feasted on the fabulous food served in the cafe, managed by the cafe manager, XXX XXXXXXX.  But what would Christmas be without the children in whose eyes we see the wonders of Christmas.

In a crowded holiday store, XXX XXXXXXX, wanting to share the holiday spirit, beckoned the children and their parents to visit with the Santa and his beautiful wife, encouraging all to embrace the fantasy of the season.  Children and parents alike had an opportunity to enjoy the presence of Santa and his favorite helper as well as the spirit of the holidays that Costco and the Costco employees exemplified.

It was the beginning of a Merry Christmas and a chance for all to share the joy and excitement of the holiday season.  Thank you to all the employees and managers of the West End Costco.  May all the joys of Christmas be yours and may all the children who dream the dreams of Santa and his helpers become an inspiration for the holiday season

Thank you for making my holiday season.

Author's Notes:
This was a letter the cafe manager had just received the day we went back for another round of hot dogs dressed as Mr. and Mrs. Claus.  I took out the personal information as to not provide naughty people that information.  Thought you might all enjoy seeing what excites us at Christmas time.  (The "newletter" misspell was in the original letter)
The cash registers all stopped and the crowds around them went nuts when we walked into the store and then applauded.

And all we did was go in for supper ... hot dogs and a berry smoothie.

Very cleverly written and original.  I like the letter format.  Santa bringing joy to the little children is heartwarming.
