With lights and sirens blaring, Tredyffrin Township police cruiser escorted a Paoli Fire Company firetruck down Lancaster Avenue, turning in to the Paoli Shopping Center. Singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town and other Christmas carols with the Noteables, the children watched in fascination as Santa climbed down from the big red fire engine. The kids were so excited they could hardley contain themselves. With hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies in hand, the crowd followed Santa in to the Paoli Hardware Center. Seated on a big red sleigh with 2 elves to help, Santa listened as each child gave Santa their Christmas list.
Paoli Business & Professional Association president Marie Thibault had the vision for the day . . . and the community thanks her. Below are some photos from Santa’s arrival:
