Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Posted by: Shaun Donovan

Santa has been sighted in the Boroughs.  He is making his way around to find the homes of the good citizens of Lemoyne and Wormleysburg.  Again this year Santa has asked the West Shore Bureau of Fire to take him around town so that he can greet people and bring them candy and Christmas cheer.

On Saturday December 20th from 2-5pm engines from the West Shore Bureau of Fire will be escorting Santa around town.  Look for him in your neighborhood.
