Santa Comes To The Ford Plant In Norfolk Virginia

In the sixtys, I was working on the unloading dock, one of the men came out and said we need a Santa Claus I said "I'm your man" he said have you ever played him? sure I said at church, veteran hospital, for the DAV. They said the company wanted to do something for the familes of the workers. So they rented me a suit and set the date. We had 1,300 kids come through and Ford gave each one a large stocking filled with all kinds of toys. The next year they rented Norview High School, I came on stage singing, the auditorium was packed and they were standing around the walls I still drive Fords, on my 06 truck I get 21 mpg on a trip.
