Merry Christmas everyone!!!! We just received word that "Santa Claus" has put the Union Bridge area on his list of early visits for the 2021 "Santa Watch"! Santa will be in the area December 13th, 14th and 15th. Just like last year, he has asked us to provide a ride for him using our fire engines so that his reindeer can be fully rested for their big night on Christmas Eve.

Here is the schedule and routes he will be travelling with members of the fire company along with a small parade of fire equipment. All times for the scheduled routes begin at 6 PM and end at 8 PM.

Please turn on your porch lights and keep a sharp eye and ear out for Santa's arrival in your area.

Monday, December 13 - Town of Union Bridge

Tuesday, December 14 - Bucher John Rd., FSK Hwy (Keymar), Middleburg Rd., Rampart Way, Star Ct, Banner Ave.

Wednesday, December 15 - Bark Hill Rd., Hoff Rd., Stem Rd., Mckinstry's Mill Rd, Marble Quarry Rd.

The rain date for any of the above dates will be on Friday, December 17th.

THANK YOU UBFC and Santa! We REALLY appreciate the fire company for bringing Santa around, and thank you to Santa and whoever was driving Utility 8, for listening and paying attention (seriously, not being sarcastic at all) We live on FSK Hwy across from Y Rd., and thought we were going to miss you when they turned north on FSK Hwy, we didn't hear the siren til the last second. But the really nice young guy driving U8 , heard us holler Hi Santa as we ran out, and not only stopped, but backed up so my granddaughter could see Santa and get her treat from him. This meant the world to her, it's her 1st real Christmas knowing and understanding who Santa is. Thank you SO much for a great job. Merry Christmas !!!!! Please stay safe til next year.

THANK YOU UBFC and whoever was playing Santa tonight (Tuesday), and especially whoever was driving Utility 8 tonight. We almost missed Santa when they turned from Y Rd onto FSK Hwy, we didn't hear the siren right away. But we got outside and yelled "Hi Santa" and whoever was driving U8, stopped and even backed up several houses to our driveway so my granddaughter could see Santa. It really made her night, and we REALLY appreciate that level of attention and service ALOT. Being her 1st real Christmas that she understands who Santa is, made tonight even more special for her and all of us.

Merry Christmas, and a Safe Happy New Year!!!
