On Sunday December 11th Santa visited Millstone Township not by sleigh but by our own fire engines. It was a perfect day for Santa as the weather was cold with a few snow flurries late in the afternoon. Santa was greeted by many of our townships children with big smiles and some with a laundry list of gift ideas. Wishing you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season from the Millstone Township Fire Company.
