There were a lot of happy kids, and adults, in Maxwell this past Saturday. Not only did Santa visit the kids at the fire station, he also helped deliver a present to the firefighters — a new/used fire truck. The kid were very excited with their bags of candy and seeing Old Saint Nick himself, and outside the firefighters were taking turns sitting in the rig and, of course, pressing all the horns and sirens.

After all the fun at the station, the firefighters took Santa around town to deliver bags of treats to our senior citizens, a tradition they have been doing for a little over 50 years. No snow on the ground yet, but there was still lots of Christmas Spirit in Maxwell.
