Nate and Mary Ida, founders of the Santa House in Bay City, have been personal friends of Santa Claus for more than 50 years. Nate is no longer with us and is now working full time with Santa, and Mary Ida has doubled her efforts to keep the Santa House going with help of volunteers. There is always a need for more help and donations to make sure the house is properly maintained for kids to enjoy during the holiday season.
