Bruce Moores enjoys bringing smiles to kids’ faces

GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, NL – Santa is a busy man.

He can’t make it to every event, so he has people all over the world to assist him during the busy months leading up to Christmas.

One such helper is Bruce Moores, a Botwood boy who has called Grand Falls-Windsor home for the last 46 years.
He’s been Santa’s helper in the parade in Grand Falls-Windsor for five or six years, riding alongside Mrs. Claus as the main attraction.

“The last three years I’ve been gathering kids’ names to make a list,” Moores said. “I identify the kids on the street by location.
“The last two years I’ve had over 120 kids’ names.”

Moores said he and his wife Lillian – who he says is also a “professional volunteer” – have always been involved with children.
Moores himself was a Scout leader in his younger days for 13 years.

“I love kids,” Moores said, adding the Santa’s helper gig is a perfect fit.

He loves seeing the look on children’s faces when they see Santa and he speaks to them during the parade.

“We were driving by and I saw one kid with their front teeth gone and I said ‘ho, ho, ho, Santa gotta get you some front teeth for Christmas,’” Moores said, adding there was a great reaction from the child and parents.
“(I love) seeing the looks on the kids’ faces when you call their names or say something funny to them.
“And not only the kids, but the adults as well.”

After the parade Santa visits the Carmelite House, which is another favourite of his.

“Visiting those seniors, every year you have a splash,” Mores said. “It’s amazing. It’s just lots of fun.”
