Next meeting will be held same place: Golden Corral 3710 West Dublin Granville, Columbus OH 43235 ph 614-799-9579 (close to Sawmill & 161/Dublin Granville Rd) at 12:00 noon on Saturday March 10th. We look forward to seeing everyone and new guests are welcome.
See our NEW item (NEWS) further down the page. This is where we can include extra info from the Santa organizations around us and perhaps of National importance.
As for a TOPIC for this gathering, Mike has suggested that each person have an opportunity (2-5 minutes each) to describe their personal vision for the Buckeye Santas, through this year and for their season upcoming, in order to provide ongoing input and goals for current and future years. This is your chance to redefine the future of our organization. If you cannot make the luncheon meeting but would like to respond, please feel free to send your response directly to Santa@BuckeyeSantas and your input will be shared with the group.
In conversations with individuals it has become obvious that we have a great need for our organization, and this need must be met through the inclusion of all.

Email sent 2/12 RE: Inventionasium job
Christmas is still many months away and already we are receiving JOB REQUESTS. Last year more than 150 job requests were made available to Buckeye Santas through our job posting services. This number does not include all those jobs that were passed off to each other without having gone through the Job Coordinator, nor does that number reflect the number of potential bookings that may arise from that one notice!
If you want to be included in the mailings of available Santa jobs, it is incumbent upon you to make sure that your 2018 membership in the Buckeye Santas is updated, current, as required by our governing documents.
Please get ALL your paperwork to our Secretary ASAP!
This will also ensure your photo posting on our Meet Our Members web page. (if we don't have one, please forward your best photo to our webmaster)
Thank you, sincerely, for visiting our web page. Your comments, suggestions,
and complaints will be gladly received at our email address: Santa@BuckeyeSantas.com
Please be aware that much of our original site is still under review and re-construction, but we will be sure to read all the mail and do our best to bring forth a great web presence!
