Santa and Tree Lighting draw a crowd

On Sunday, December 4, Fanwood’s holiday season officially began when Santa Claus arrived via firetruck at the annual Fanwood Holiday Party and Tree Lighting. The event was organized by the Fanwood Recreation Commission and included holiday treats, crafts and, of course, photos with Santa. The line of Santa’s fans wrapped around the tent with children excited to meet Santa. The Scotch Plains Fanwood High School Chamber Choir and the Jazz Band, The Moonglowers, provided holiday music throughout the event. The Holiday Celebration concluded at 5 p.m. when Mayor Colleen Mahr, joined by Councilmen Tom Kranz and Jack Molenaar lit the Fanwood town tree on the train station lawn.
