In parts of the world, Santa arrives by sleigh, slides down chimneys or
walks through front doors. But for people living in small island communi-
ties in the Pacific Northwest, access to the mainland is limited – and chil-

Lions clubs in the Pacific Northwest saw the need, and wanted to do

lights on it could possibly come out to the islands with candy and toys
for the kids."

THE ROVING EYE PART ONE
Dan was a single guy living at home with his father
and working in the family business.
When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune

find a wife with whom to share his fortune.
One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted

natural beauty took his breath away.
"I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her,
"but in just a few years, my father will die and I will
inherit $200 million."
Impressed, the woman asked for his business card
and three days later, she became his stepmother.
