2018 Santa Run Is Coming To Town!

2018 Santa Run

Have you been naughty or nice this year?  Santa Claus will be coming to town to find out!  Keep your eyes and ears open for the sight of flashing lights along with the sound of sirens and Christmas carols.  Santa will be making his way through the neighborhoods served by GVFRS atop one of our fire trucks every Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting) November 24th – December 23rd.  Santa loves to see the smiling faces of the boys and girls as he makes his way around our district, so if you see or hear him in your neighborhood be sure to come out to see him!  We also like to see how much you all enjoy his visits, and would love to share his pictures on our Facebook page.  If you capture a moment you would like to share with us, you can send it via Facebook Messenger on the Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad, Inc. official Facebook page or email pictures to hcarson@gvfrs.org.  We’re so excited for his annual visit, and we look forward to seeing you all as we bring him around to spread Christmas cheer!
