MIDDLEBOROUGH – Chief Lance Benjamino is pleased to announce that the Middleborough Fire Department has accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus to the Hannah BG Shaw house on Wareham Street for the Christmas cheer on Sunday December 20th.
Middleborough Tower 3 drove several laps and a few stops around the complex while Mr. and Mrs. Claus waved to all residents.
The special visit was arranged after Activity Director Ashley Stuart requested a fire truck to take Mr and Mrs Santa Claus to the Shaw Home to bring some joy to residents who are confined to their rooms and the Middleborough Fire Department was happy to participate.
“I thought it was a great idea, and by keeping Mr. and Mrs. Claus in the bucket of the tower, we were able to maintain social distance and the residents could say hello through their windows,” said boss Benjamino. “It is important during these extraordinary times to be able to cheer and convey the spirit of the holiday to people as best you can. As always, the Middleborough Fire Department wishes everyone a safe and happy Christmas time. “
