OCEAN TOWNSHIP: We lost count but at least 100 youngsters came to the Oakhurst Fire Department on Larkin Place. The fire department members welcomed all the visitors and Santa gave each a big hug and a Merry Christmas wish.
Pancakes, hot chocolate and coffee for Mom and Dad served up by the Department chef and assistants pleased everyone.
The rows of tables were done up in Merry Red and Green which matched the beautifully decorated tree where Santa sat to greet each child and hear their wishes for Christmas gifts.
The weather was fine, cool but sunny and the breakfast was done "just right." And Santa's Ho-ho-ho was just what everyone waited for.
