Maryville Santa Tradition Revived

In the 1940-50's, Christmas in Maryville meant seeing a Christmas tree in front of the old firehouse, Santa arriving on a Maryville fire truck, visiting with the kids giving each of them a bag of goodies. On Friday evening, December 8th at 6:00PM Santa will make a return visit to Old Firehouse at the corner of Donk and Zupan. Weather permitting, Santa will arrive on the 1958 Seagrave fire truck. Santa will distribute a bag of goodies to each child and be available for photos. Bring your camera or cell phone and plan to share this Maryville tradition with your own children or grandchildren. Visit FB/Memories from Maryville or FB/Maryville Connection for pictures and updates.
