santa visit pic BURKE - Over the weekend a popular character made a visit to some boys and girls. 

For the 5th year Children came to the Kerrigans's Convenience store in West Burke to give hints to Santa on what they wanted for Christmas this year.

 "My favorite thing about the whole experience is watching how the kids grow from year to year," said owner David Kerrigan, adding "it's a big thrill for me."

 Included in the festivities were two horses from Rainbow's Edge farm in Sutton giving wagon rides to lines of children. 

 Kerrigan also said he does it to bring the East and West Burke community together "as a business owner you want to erase that line so to speak and have Burke not. separations of east and west. We're doing things for the community, I feel the community is Burke." 

 This years turnout was the biggest in its five year history. Kerrigan is hoping to continue the tradition for many years to come.
