Santa Around Town
Rumor has it that Santa will be coming to the Williamstown Fire Company on Saturday December 14th. He will be getting a ride on our fire trucks to see all the good boys and girls of Williamstown. Be sure to wave as he comes by. If for some unfortunate reason he misses your street please understand that he is a very busy fellow and there are a lot of streets, and children, in Williamstown that he is trying to see before darkness sets in.
The Williamstown Fire Company held their annual installation and awards banquet on Friday November 15th at Brigalia's. Congratulations to all the 2014 officers and everyone who got an award for their year of hard work.
