SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO BERNARDS TOWNSHIP DECEMBER 17th ... And he’ll be riding on a Fire Engine!

As many of you know, we have two fire companies in Bernards township: the Basking Ridge Fire Company No. 1; and the Liberty Corner Fire Company. Did you also know that both of these organizations are “all-volunteer” and responsible for raising the majority of their own funds?

Santa knows this! And each year, he does his best to help raise money for the fire departments by hitching a ride on a fire truck and delivering holiday gifts to children’s homes.
