Day One Dorfus Adventure!
WOW…Santa Claus Brings the Spirit of Christmas to Jamestown Ca.
Jamestown California, known as the Gold of the Mother Lode, had lost the Christmas spirit. Through the involvement of our Finance Manager, Jim Greenleaf, the spirit, not only of Christmas, but of the local community being alive, was rekindled and fanned into a flame.
Jim, appearing as Kris Kringle, organized the town’s forgotten tradition of the tree lighting ceremony. It seemed that the entire town turned out.
Jim’s ability as a real bearded Santa touched the child in everyone. Those who attended also saw hope anew in a town that economically has been in a downward spiral.
The Christmas tree lighting ceremony is already on next year’s calendar. Santa will be available all year at Sierra Motors bringing the gift of extended service contracts to all who own a vehicle.
Watch this amazing video and you too will believe!

Hi Jim! You are so cool! It has been about 20 years since you lived across the street and walked over in your bare feet all the time, chased by your kids! No more Pizza Place…had some fun.
