The Mansfield Community Club teamed up with Graham Automall to host the Dial-A-Santa program Wednesday evening.

Children of all ages had the opportunity to talk with Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves.

Mansfield Community Club volunteer Laura Russell said children could call Graham Automall on West Fourth Street from 6 to 8 p.m. and their calls would be forwarded to the North Pole.

"We've been doing this for 12 years. We field calls from about 300 kids and we are the switchboard that gets the calls to the North Pole to Santa," Russell said.  

        
A group of volunteers from the club, Graham Automall and Miss Mansfield Scholarship Program handled the transfer of calls.
 

The Mansfield Community Club is made up of a group of volunteers who provide personal and professional development through community involvement for men and women ages 21 and over.
