Santa Float 2011

 That's right, its that time of year for Santa and his Elves (District 9 Firefighters) to go and spread Christmas cheer to our neighbors in the Linwood and Five Mile Neighborhoods. This year, just like years previous Santa and his buddies were collecting food for the food bank. We want to thank all those who gave this year and wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas.
