Dressed as an elf, Wanda Woods kicks out her legs in order to try to encourage Santa to dance while members of the Capital City High School orchestra play Thursday at St. Mary's Hospital during Joy Day. CCHS is a partner in education with St. Mary's and does a number of activities at the hospital throughout the year. Santa, otherwise known as Mike Eichholz, and Woods made their way around the hospital to spread good cheer for Joy Day. Woods marked 50 years of service to St. Mary's Hospital this year.

Every year, the hospital asks its workers and families to come together for Joy Day.
