Right on time and according to the schedule, Santa arrived at the Morewood Fire Department to ride atop the fire truck and greet residents, young and old. With festive Christmas lights adorning the truck and sirens and horn sounding, the jolly old elf waved to children bundled up outside on a very cold Christmas Eve. Firefighter “elves” handed out candy canes as they walked behind the truck on its now-annual trek through the streets of this North Dundas village. The school and library may be gone, but the spirit and support of the Morewood firefighters, volunteers and community continues to grow.    Carruthers photo
