Attendees were treated to hot cocoa, cookies and pie during the event. Two trees were lit separately on the firehouse property, at School Street and East Village Road.

Santa arrived by fire truck to meet with children and hear their Christmas wishes. The ceremony is organized by members of the White Hills Voluntary Fire Company.

New, unwrapped toys were accepted for TEAM Inc.’s Toys 4 Kids drive during the event, and Santa Claus will tour the neighborhood by fire truck next Saturday to collect more toys for children in need.
