FROM LEFT, Bill Waite, Joshua’s Tavern co-owner T.J. Siatras and Santa Claus Fund head volunteer Bob Thiboutot celebrate a check to the fund from Joshua’s for $9,100 — slightly up from last year’s $8,800 gift. Siatras said it’s the 18th year Joshua’s has pitched in for the fund, using raffled items donated by its vendors and collecting $1 from every pint sold at the Maine Street tavern during special events in December. “We’re just short of $100,000 (donated) over the 18 years,” Siatras said. “Next year, we will break it.”
