The Tenacious Dames are at it again with their third annual pictures with Santa and Mrs. Clause and their motorcycle.

This year brings some changes to what has become a popular attraction during the Christmas Stroll.

The Dames will stage the photo shoot at the Main Street Grind at 713 Main St., instead of at the Miles City Star. “There’s more room. They also have outdoor windows so people can see in from the street,” said club president Jennifer Kransky.

The Dames will set up from 5:30-8 p.m. during the Christmas Stroll on Friday, Dec. 1.

The club will also be collecting donations for the Empty Stockings program. While toys are accepted the program is specifically looking for clothing and hygiene products. 

Santa and Mrs. Claus, played by Randy and Penny Hart, will be sporting traditional costumes but with the added twist of Harley motorcycle gear. This year’s ride of choice is a white 2016 Harley Street Glide.

According to Kransky, the bike will look great with the white background and the silver and maroon Christmas tree bulbs.  “I’m really excited! I think it’ll be fun.”

Prices for the photos by size and package. Package one consists of one 5x7 and four wallets for $10. Package two is two 5x7 and eight wallets for $15. Package three contains an 8x10, a 5x7 and four wallets for $20. And package four consists of an 8x10, two 5x7s and eight wallets for $25.

Individual photos can also be purchased. An individual 8x10 costs $10, a 5x7 costs $7 and wallets cost $5. 

The turn-around time on photos is expected to be two to three days, Kransky said.

The photo shoot is one of the organization’s biggest fundraisers.

Another new addition to the organizations list of activities is bell ringing at Walmart for the Salvation Army.  “We’ll be all geared out,” Kransky said.

The Dames will be ringing on Sunday, Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Dames will be celebrating their fourth year as a riding club next year. The organization now has 20 members and continues to grow.
