It is that time of year again, when the Alert No.1 “Elves” will drive me around the streets of Downingtown Borough and East Caln Twp. on Saturday, December 19, 2020.
The Alert No. 1 Elves have been working with the Logistics Department at the North Pole and and we confirmed that I will be able to visit the area on Decembers 19th. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the Alert Elves and helpers will not be able to hand-out our traditional candy canes, or have direct contact with the public this year. However, when you hear the sirens and air horns of Tower 45, please come out onto your sidewalks or front yards and the truck will be able to stop or slow down enough that your family will be able to take photos from a distance.
Each year, our volunteers appreciate the monetary and food donations that we receive from the community. We will not be able to accept any of the donations directly handed to us, this year. Although, you can mail a check to the Alert Fire Co. No. 1, 122 W. Pennsylvania Ave., Downingtown, PA 19335.
We will start the tour at 9:00 AM in the West Ward of Downingtown and then the Johnsontown area in the late morning. In the early and mid afternoon we will be in the East Ward of Downingtown and late afternoon and early evening we will be in East Caln Twp.
Be sure to come-out and see me on December 19th.
