Bring a light and shine it bright

While most of us have the freedom to celebrate the holidays with our loved ones, police officers, first responders, and firefighters can often be found tending to emergencies, waiting for a call that could potentially save a life, and patrolling the area so that we can all feel confident with the safety of our community.

In Winthrop, we are lucky to have firefighters and police officers who dedicate their evenings to bringing joy to the children in town. As in years past, both departments will work together to safely transport Santa around in a fire truck, for all to see.

If you want to show your appreciation and support of police officers, firefighters, and first responders, bring a lit candle and shine it bright while you are watching Santa go by. It’s one little thing that the community can do to increase the morale and show support to those who serve us all year long.

Glynn. “We hope that the variety of performances will provide a calm and relaxing atmosphere for travelers.”
