Melander’s Santa Truck celebrates 10 years!

Melander Trucking out of Menahga, MN began the Santa Truck 10 years ago, and still continue to travel and spread Christmas joy.

When they started in 2007, they made stops in Hill City and Menahga, and over the years have grown to other communities in the area.

The Melander family has made special trips to the Frazee nursing home, friends who have been diagnosed with illnesses, and other towns that have been requested by people checking out the truck.
