Santa was able to make his rounds Saturday with the Ringing Hill Fire Company
SANATOGA PA – Santa Claus is ready to prove he’s no quitter.
Yes, he admits, he had a tough time over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 17-18, 2016) with the area’s icy weather conditions. He was forced to call the fire companies in Sanatoga, Royersford, and Limerick, and postpone scheduled Saturday trips atop trucks through their coverage areas.
The good news is he’s willing to try again, and each of those companies reported on Facebook that he hopes to visit next Saturday, Dec. 24. No times have been announced yet.
Their volunteers understood. With the big guy in the red suit, it’s all about children and their safety. The slippery shape of some local roadways certainly might have made it difficult for, or even endangered, families yearning for a glimpse of the star of the season.
“We are concerned of slip and fall injuries for both our members handing out candy canes, and our residents rushing down sidewalks and driveways to greet Santa,” the Sanatoga Fire Company explained to its online audience. “We would like to once again apologize, as well as thank you for your patience and understanding, but unfortunately Mother Nature has not been cooperative,” it added later.
The busiest and jolliest of elves did manage, however, to squeeze in some waves and smiles Sunday in the coverage areas of the Ringing Hill (photo at top), West End (photo below), and Upper Pottsgrove fire companies.
