Secret Santa 2010

CSanta and Rodney the Reindeerhristmas came a little early for some children in North Catasuqua.  Santa Claus and Rodney the Reindeer visited North Catasauqua on the morning of December 19, 2010, with a pre-Christmas delivery of some gifts and an escort by the North Catasauqua Fire Dept.

NCFD members made about 20 stops while visiting roughly 30 children. As you can see from the pictures, all of the children were very excited to have Santa stop at their house.

NCFD would like to thank all the parents and relatives that make this day a success.  We understand schedules are busy and we try our best to accomodate them.  Thanks for being patient with us.

If your children are in any of the pictures and you would like high resolution copies, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we would be glad to send them to you.
