To the Editor:

Don't miss your chance on this memorable event.

Parents of New Milford's youth, last year the fire department started planning fundraisers to support its 150th Anniversary Celebration in 2013.

I want to take a few moments to explain one of these great fundraisers.

The Santa Express traveled to more than 50 homes last year, bringing Santa Claus on a fire engine to meet the children of New Milford.

Friends, family and neighbors all enjoyed the time they got to spend seeing Santa and taking pictures next to the fire truck.

The biggest complaint we had was from people who didn't know about what we were doing.

Now is your chance.

Registration has opened and we have tried our hardest to reach the masses with this information.

Parents have already signed their children up for visits with Mr. Kringle, and you can, too.

We will be doing our annual route Dec. 10 and 11 throughout New Milford.

We want to make sure no one misses out on this amazing prelude to Christmas. As we heard so many times last year, "there was nothing more amazing than seeing our child's face light up when you pulled up and Santa stepped out."

Please visit for more information about the Santa Express and to download a registration form.

Registration ends Nov. 11, 2011 to time is of the essence.

See you in December,
