Rhody Postcards: Paul J. Evans '77

Greetings from the North Pole!

Paul J. Evans ’77 has the best job in the world.

Recently retired from his job as a lieutenant with the Warwick Fire Department, Paul now suits up a little differently for work. As a professional Santa Claus, he dons the traditional red suit and hat for stops all over Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Please note: the beard is real!

Paul is a graduate of the International University of Santa Claus and recently attended the Northeast Santa Claus Convention where he had the honor of taking the official Santa Claus oath.

In the off-season, when Santa finds some free time, he keeps busy as a baseball umpire, a Hospice volunteer, and a physical education teacher at St. Peter’s School in Warwick.
