No Reindeer Will Be There, but Santa is Coming


HealthLinc is excited as a child on Christmas morning to announce that Santa Claus is coming to town – actually three towns.

On Monday, December 21, Santa will visit three of HealthLinc’s locations: Valparaiso, Michigan City, and Knox. He will visit for an entire hour at each stop before proceeding to the next snow-covered spot.

HealthLinc (formerly Hilltop Community Health Center) wants to share the joy of Christmas by arranging for Santa to visit each of its offices. Children are welcome to say hello, sit on Santa’s lap, and recite their wish list. Santa – with his full beard and jolly laugh – will put a smile on each and every kid’s face.

Santa will be arriving in Valparaiso at 11 a.m. until 12 p.m., at 454 S. College Avenue. He then will fly over to Michigan City, at 710 Franklin Street, to be available from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. His sleigh ride will end in Knox, at 104 E. Culver Road, Suite 100, sending Santa down the chimney at 4 p.m. and returning to the North Pole at 5 p.m.

HealthLinc is a Federally Qualified Health Center serving Porter, LaPorte, Starke and Jasper counties. HealthLinc provides primary medical, dental and behavioral health services in locations in Valparaiso, Michigan City, and Knox.
