Cossacks bring Christmas cheer to needy children

December 15, 2012

There were Harleys in place of reindeer, the low-pitched rumble of motorcycles instead of the high-pitched jingle of sleigh bells and with Santa Claus otherwise engaged, Jeremy Klaus donned the famous red suit and became Santa “Klaus.”

But make no mistake — Christmas came to a dozen Big Spring families Saturday.

For the 21st year, members of the local Cossack Motorcycle Club hopped on their Hogs and spread holiday cheer to needy children and their families as part of their Bikes for Tykes Toy Run.
