As taken from the pages of The Aegis dated Thursday, Dec. 26, 1963: Santa arrived in Edgewood Meadows at the model home riding on an Abingdon Fire Company truck. The developers of the subdivision, Ward and Bosely, were the hosts of the party for the residents. The most impressive thing about the arrival of Santa was his size. Santa was six feet nine inches tall and weighed 300 pounds. The Bel Air Moose Club sponsored a Christmas party for some underprivileged families.

But the woman approaching smiled and shook her head. "I just want a hug," she said. Without hesitation, all three Grossmans rushed forward for a group embrace that brought the woman to tears. The Grossmans were among the 600 or so who took part in the ninth annual Mitzvah Day, preparing gifts at the Jewish Community Center in Pikesville and taking them to charities around the city.

The body of a kidnapped 11-year-old girl was found Christmas Day after a search that brought about 3,000 volunteers out to comb the muddy fields and woods of Wicomico County, law enforcement officials said. Police say Sarah Haley Foxwell had been taken Tuesday night from her bedroom by a registered sex offender who has been held in her abduction for the past three days. The girl's body was discovered about 4 p.m. in the Rum Ridge area of northern Wicomico about three-quarters of a mile south of the Maryland- Delaware state line, an area that had been a focus of the search.

The singers paused in their rendition of "I Saw Three Ships," for handbell players to chime the melody.
