    IN AWE OF SANTA PAWS — A visit to the Central Aroostook Humane Society in Presque Isle took on that magical holiday feeling when these two young ladies from Mars Hill made a donation to help shelter animals and got to visit with Santa Paws and two fluffy Pomeranian pups currently residing at the facility. Their dad, Pete Lento, joined his daughters for the recent festivities at the annual fund-raiser. Pictured in awe of Santa, from left: Paige and Chloe Lento.
