Children can go up on the Antique Truck to see Santa, take a picture and get a candy cane!

Due to insurance liability ELFR is now very limited to the # of volunteers permitted on the Antique Truck.  

As a result, Santa will NOT have volunteers with him to assist with gifts so Santa will NOT distribute gifts. 

***SANTA'S HELPERS ARE OFF DUTY FIRE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEES VOLUNTEERING THEIR TIME. 

WE HAVE PROVIDED AS MANY DATES TO THE COMMUNITY AS WE CAN ACCOMMODATE

WITH VOLUNTEER STAFFING ON THE ANTIQUE FIRE TRUCK.***
