Santa’s elf Jody Matson reports: “Poulsbo has grown tremendously, so keep in mind that we cannot possibly reach every neighborhood. If we missed your neck of the woods, visit us the very last night, Dec. 13 at Pioneer Hill Station 77 at 7:45 p.m.”

Remember to help with your child’s safety. Battalion Chief Kurt Krech said, “When the kids see Santa, they forget that bad things can still happen and that cars are still on the road. Even parents get caught up in the moment at times.”

Call Matson at 360-204-2324 if you’d like to ride along, hand out candy canes, or if you have a special connection with Santa.

(Note: Firefighters are accepting donations of canned food for Fishline.)
