WURTSBORO, NY — Santa, aka Jason Parks of the Wurtsboro Chapter of the Hogs Motorcycle Club, presents children with presents at O’Toole’s Harley-Davidson’s annual holiday party held on December 4, courtesy of Kohl’s Distribution Center. It is the 26th year for the event, which benefits Head Start. Joining the Hogs this year were two other clubs, the Defiant Crew of Orange County and the Latin American Motorcycle Association of Westchester County. O’Toole’s partner Tom Verdiglione coordinates with Charles Davis, president of the Head Start board of directors, and Bertha Williams, Head Start administrator, whose staff and volunteer parents and children set up the hall and prepared and served food and refreshments for the 700 participants. The gifts arrive accompanied by 41 motorcycles and a Town of Circleville Fire Department pumper truck with Santa Claus and his elf waving to the children.
