WILLIAMSPORT -- It's that time of year again, when Williamsport offers its popular visit with Santa for children, all set in Byron Memorial Park, which is decked out for the holidays. Santa Claus is portrayed by Roger Grimes, who has been working on his naturally white beard for 38 years. On Wednesday night, children jumped at the chance for a Christmas chat with him. "Gimme a high five," Grimes said to 5-year-old Dallas Croasmun of Clear Spring as the boy climbed on to Grimes' lap. Dallas' sister Katie, 8, then got her chance with Grimes.
