Santa, his elves and a live reindeer will be at Harry and David's Country Village, ready to visit with every child.

The North Pole crew will be available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. For $10 kids can sit for a photo and, with the purchase of one photo, families can take their own photographs, too. The event raises money for the South Medford High School softball team.

From 1 to 3 p.m., Santa will create a special experience for children who have sensory and experience disorders. It will include lower lighting and music and a smaller gathering area, organizers said. Resources for kids and families to prepare for this special visit are available at www.familiesforcommunity.org.
