During the Exchange Club Christmas tree sale, which is in full swing at Kiwanis Park, a request was received for five large trees to be delivered. No problem, the Old Faithful vintage fire truck came to the rescue and delivered the trees, above. Rides for children on Old Faithful will be available at Kiwanis Park 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Santa's workshop will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Children unable to visit Santa may write to him; letters to Santa can be placed in the special North Pole mailboxes at Kiwanis Park or inside the New Canaan Library entrance. Exchange Club Elves promise all letters will be promptly answered. Christmas trees of all sizes, wreaths, roping, tree ornaments and other holiday decorations are on sale until Christmas eve 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays at Kiwanis Park. All proceeds go towards supporting many local causes including the Exchange Club Parenting Skills Center for the prevention of child abuse who during the last eighteen years have actively given counseling and teaching helping more than 7,000 families in New Canaan and a five-town region.
