Santa joins the NEMO Search and Rescue for a fundraiser

Santa, Mrs. Claus and a NEMO K-9 at Orscheln Farm and Home.

As Christmas approaches, there will be a lot more Santa Claus sightings!

Families were welcome to take pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus on Saturday at Orscheln Farm and Home. The Northeast Missouri Search and Rescue provided photography services in exchange for donations.

All proceeds will be used for the enhancement of NEMOâ??s Search and Rescue team.

â??That's our main goal, it's to really find the victim, find them alive... Find them safe and get them returned to their relatives. Thatâ??s the main goal in life. All the training we do and everything that we do is worth it... every bit of it, if we can find that one victim,â?? says Rich Enoch of the Monroe City Search and Rescue.

Two of Monroe City's dogs came in to sit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Their trainers gave them red squeeze balls to help them look like Rudolph.
