Looking Back: Santa comes to the Village of St. Clair Shores circa 1940s

St. Clair Shores Sentinel | Published December 17, 2014


In December, Santa made a special stop to greet the children of St. Clair Shores, along with the men and women serving in the military. This image may have been taken in the Police Station. There is a traffic poster and Macomb County map in the background.

The annual custom of city tree lighting, accompanied by music and Santa’s arrival, continues today. St. Clair Shores has a long community tradition of celebrating the Holiday season.
