Since then the numbers are even higher.

Santa Claus gets a big hug from a fan at Sunday's Christmas Party hosted by the Rotarians.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The question was expected, the answer even more so from the roomful of children at American Legion Post 125 on Sunday.

The North Adams and Williamstown Rotary Clubs teamed up Sunday to bring some Christmas cheer to 60 area children and their families at their annual Children's Holiday Party. The Rotaries, assisted by local businesses, raised
