West Long Branch: The Fire Ladies at WLB Fire Company No. 1 had everything ready before 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, an hour before the doors opened. When borough children arrived they found Santa checking his list and whispered in his ear their Christmas wish. The Ladies had prepared a lunch menu of hot dogs and chips with fruit juice and coffee for the moms and dads.
Biagio Guzzi ....Naughty?...No, Nice.
A children’s 50-50 with a box of toys – one for the winning girl and one for the winning boy- was a happy attraction. The kids also had a chance to climb onto the fire engine, a big treat for the young adventurers.
Emily Petillo ...Giving Santa her list
Past Fire Ladies were remembered by Santa with a stocking hung in their honor next to the grandfather clock in the greeting room. The names are: Dolly Gudetti, Sis DiFillippo and Nancy Herry.
The cold, bright sunny day found a fun day for all.
