A Labor of Love–The Santa Parade

The beloved Santa Parade through Fanwood brought awe and smiles across town on Saturday, December 16th. A coating of snow brought an extra holiday touch to our annual tradition which goes back some 50 years. With his helpers from the Fire Department, Rescue Squad and PBA Local 123, Santa delivered over 1,000 gifts to about 380 homes across town. Thanks to everyone who makes this possible every year but mostly the Fire Department and the family members of the firefighters who collect, sort and box the gifts and arrange everything into an orderly route for Santa and his helpers.

Rescue Squad participants: Brian Downing, Jeff Downing, Karolyn Buckridee, Shreya Kachroo, Dante Clausen, Ed Winsor, Tom Kranz, Lisa Walker, Joan Lozowski, Ken Gorman and Nick Tripodi. Thanks, all!
