Santa Claus is coming

Santa Claus is coming to our town aboard a New Vernon Volunteer Fire Department fire truck. Yes, on the nights of December 5th and 6th, between 5:00 and 8:00 PM, we will be making the rounds with Santa to visit your children. In the event of an extremely bad rain or snowstorm on either or both evenings we will make arrangements to have Santa meet children at the firehouse on the following weekend.

Santa and his helpers will be following Covid guidelines for his visit.

  • Santa will greet the children outside
  • Santa will maintain 6’ social distancing; no sitting on Santa’s lap, etc.
  • Santa’s helpers will be masked up
  • If for any reason you do not feel comfortable with Santa’s visit, arrangements can be made to pick up a gift stocking.

In order to determine which houses we should visit, we are asking each of you to return the card sent to every Harding resident to tell us whether you have children and would like us to stop. It is most important that these cards be returned to us before November 29th.

Please include your phone number in case Santa’s helpers have trouble locating your house. The letter sent is Santa’s route schedule with a notation as to when and where we will have central meeting places.

If you have any questions please email Fire Chief Peter Finkle,

Again this year we are proud to be a collection for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program for less fortunate children. Toys for Tots accepts only new, unwrapped toys. Toys can be given to Santa’s helpers at the time of Santa’s visit.
