Season’s Greeter Camps Out in Quechee

Paulette Sellers, of Connecticut, right, hands her father, Paul Picaut, of Quechee, a box of fruit-flavored candy canes in the parking lot of Shepherd’s Pie Restaurant on Route 4 yesterday. Picaut plays Santa for four hours a day, seven days a week at the Quechee restaurant until Christmas Eve, waving at passing cars and posing for pictures with visiting children. “I love it when the tractor trailers drive by and honk their horns,” he said. “It’s great the number of people who wave back. I think seeing Santa waving to them on the side of the road brightens up their day.”(Valley News - Sarah Priestap)
