Santa and child at ToyliftOne big clue that Christmas is nearing takes place on the first Friday of December when Fluvanna folks team up with other Charlottesville-centric counties to make sure the season is a happy one for all local kids.

This year was no different thanks to the efforts of business owners Ed and Denise Lauterbach who, time and again, have filled the corner of the Food Lion parking lot with lots of reasons to celebrate.

Together with the help of everyday people, the Lauterbachs provide sweet treats and entertainment as an open invitation for the public to donate toys.

Historic photographI can’t remember the first time I went to a store, but I do remember when the store would come to us. The Raleigh Man drove a bright yellow enclosed wagon pulled by a horse, and he would come by our place about once every three months. His arrival was a big event for our mother, and also for us kids. The Raleigh Man sold a lot of small things the nearest store would not have. It was really interesting to see the great variety and quantity of merchandise he could pack in a wagon. Add a comment
