Monica Feder, D01, sets up a Santa fly-in every year and all local facilities are invited. Parents give wrapped presents a few days in advanced and everyone brings a little something for the potluck just in time for Santa Claus himself to fly in on a helicopter and deliver gifts to the kids. The local fire department also attends, allowing the children to climb around the truck, spray the hoses, and ride up in the bucket ladder.
