Operation Ho Ho – Schedule Change

November 8, 2017

Please note: Major changes have been made to how the volunteer fire company will be performing our annual Operation HO HO.

In prior years we have taken two weeks of evenings traveling from one community to another transporting Santa Claus on his visits.  This year, to give our members their holiday season back but still accomplish the mission, we will be transporting multiple Santa helpers on SATURDAY DECEMBER 9th only!   A schedule of stops follows. We will try to maintain the schedule as close as possible but obviously if there is inclement weather or emergency calls we may have to adjust.  Makeup date is Sunday, December 10th.

 Thank you for your continued support!
