Sightings of jolly St. Nicholas have been frequent this holiday season in Greater New Milford.

Clearly, Santa Claus loves to bond with area children.

Among his favorite destinations each year is Sarah Noble Intermediate School's annual "Breakfast With Santa" in New Milford.

The Dec. 8 event, sponsored by the school's Band Aides, is a fundraiser for the Sarah Noble band.
