Each year children from the Abingtons, who are signed up by their parents, receive a visit and a gift from Santa. This annual tradition, which began nearly 50 years ago, continues today. Many life long residents have fond memories of being visited by the Abington Lions Santa as children. Hundreds of children are visited each year.
The program is run every December and the Abington Heights School District is split across three days, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
