Bringing Santa to town

Santa greets the good girls and boys from the Fox.

As is the tradition for many years, the fire company provided Santa’s sleigh for his annual arrival in town, taking him and his elves to State and Main, where he dismounted and lead the crowd in the countdown to light the Borough Christmas tree. Taking in the celebration was the new Rescue 19, which made it’s public debut in grand style, as the Fox, now 90-years young, handled the Santa duties.
