Buckeye Santas Membership is required in order to receive the job postings via email.
To date we have had 120 total postings, the remaining Job Postings were sent 12/11/19.
Unfortunately, it seems that THIS YEAR everyone needs Santa at the SAME TIME and date!
If you do not receive these and you are a CURRENT member, please advise your webmaster ASAP.
The Revised Guidelines as well as the 2020 Membership Application are now available on these web pages.
In order to minimize the possibilities that your email server might send our
important messages to your junk mail folder, we are now using a GoogleGroup address.

Thank you, all, for your kindnesses, support, love, cooperation and your Santa-ness over the past two years. Our new officers, Rob Harmon, Nick Rose amd Bryan Miller, will be taking the reigns on January 1, 2020, with our first meeting of the year scheduled for the second Saturday in January at 11:00AM.

We look forward to seeing everyone in January, but please travel safely.
And, as always, if Franklin County Sheriff has issued travel advisory of Level 1 or higher
the meeting will be cancelled. The Sheriff of Franklin County (Columbus area) would put that information on their website

NOW is a great time to RENEW your membership for 2020!
Here are links to the 2020 Membership Application (a simple single page!)
2020 Membership Application in WORD or 2020 Membership Application in PDF
Remember the dues increased to $25 since 2019:
In order to assure the 2020 Membership Rolls are complete, every member must complete and submit the brief but necessary 2020 Membership Application, even if nothing has changed. You can use either form, the one (in Word) or the other (in PDF), and either one should work for you!
So, lets get those completed and mailed to:
Nancy Smith, Secretary, 8483 Fairbrook Avenue, Galloway, OH 43119.
If e-mail is easier for you, send them to: PENGUINOW@MSN.COM
Only the current Members of record will receive the Minutes of previous meeting, AND job postings, and photoshoot! You gotta get those required membership documents to our Secretary ASAP
There is a nice Columbus Dispatch article concerning our Santa Richard Knapp at the Columbus Zoo.

At our recent Round Table, our Honorary Member, Stacia Cohagan, performed/demonstrated quite a few beard care techniques, as well as showing off her new Scheduling Website to simplify getting your haircare appointments made at Shag Hair Studio without having to contact her directly! It is a pretty slick operation from what I saw.
Click here for Stacia's Reservation program.
If you are not currently a member of the Buckeye Santas, it is not too late to submit your 2020 application and background check along with your dues for year 2020, to our Secretary ASAP! This will assure that you will be sent any mailings for Santa Jobs, and have your photo added to our 'MEET OUR MEMBERS' web page, and our Find A Santa Google map!
BUT, we must have your completed application, your check for dues, and your background check.
Obviously, we would like your photo, too!
Your compliance will entitle you to the FREE photo shoot scheduled for Fall of 2020.
Photos will be for members only. Please send any paperwork (application, background check, or member dues) to:
Nancy Smith, Secretary, 8483 Fairbrook Ave. Galloway, OH 43119
or e-mail PENGUINOW@MSN.COM
Your photos can be emailed to Buckeyesantas@gmail.com
In response to the difficulties of getting everyone to break up their fellowship gatherings to assemble
for a group photo we are attempting to simply capture activity pictures during our meetings.
Below are some group photos from the October meeting with a BIG THANK YOU
to our Santa Mickey Cline and his helpers for all the pics!
