Secret Santa 2011

CSanta visits the Regits Familyhristmas came a little early for some children in North Catasuqua.  Santa Claus visited North Catasauqua on the morning of December 18, 2011, with a little help from the North Catasauqua Fire Department.


Santa was excited to check on borough's children and see who has been naughty or nice.  Santa was pleased and said he would be back in a next Sunday.


NCFD members and Santa made 37 stops, over double the amount last year.  We traveled nearly 7 miles (impressive since North Catty is 0.8 square miles).


Santa also delivered the Holiday Cheer Raffle prizes to Sharon Achey and John Loftus, both of North Catasauqua,  Sharon's winning ticket won the Grand Prize of $1000.  John won the 3rd Prize worth $100.
