December 08, 2010 - The Birdfeeder and Clarkston Flower Shoppe welcomes Santa's Real Live Reindeer, 12-4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 19.

"Santa's sleigh has already landed at The Birdfeeder," said Steve Stroud, Birdfeeder owner.

All who attend will receive a professional photograph with the reindeer, and have the opportunity for Santa to sign their copy of the classic Christmas story "Twas ' the Night before Christmas." The Birdfeeder will sell the books for children to get signed. They will also take photos of Santa with children who bring a new unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots of Oakland County.

Stroud's goal is to fill the red sleigh with donations for Toys for Tots.

"We have a large goal to meet, but know the compassionate families in the area will make it possible for us to fill this sleigh," he said.

The Birdfeeder and Clarkston Flower Shoppe will collect new unwrapped children's toys through Dec. 19.

"We wanted to create an event where children would experience something unique, like meeting Santa's reindeer," Stroud said "But didn't want to shy too far away from what the season is all about. That is why we chose to partner with Toys for Tots of Oakland County to help local families right here in our own community."
