‘Tis the season for Christmas parties and the Fire Department in Eddington invited the entire community.This is the 5th year the fire department has opening up their holiday party to the public. Children enjoyed the crafts, refreshments, and of course Santa Clause stopped by for a visit.Members of the Fire Department said this is an event they look forward to each year. EMT Intermediate for the Eddington Fire Department Kristen Russell said, “I think it helps us connect with the community in a way that makes them realize we’re not just there in a crisis for them, but we’re there for anything and we’re always there for them. We’re a giant family.”Organizers said about 100 children came out for the event. Next year they hope to add even more activities for the community.
