Amidst the corona virus pandemic, the New Melle Fire Protection District Auxiliary will be canceling the annual tradition of “Pictures with Santa” typically held the first Sunday of December at Station 1 in New Melle.
In the past, the Auxiliary has also encouraged patrons to bring with them to “Pictures with Santa” any canned goods, pantry staples, personal care or cleaning items, or cash to benefit the local St. Vincent’s de Paul Food Pantry located at Immaculate Heart of Mary parish in New Melle. The Auxiliary is keenly aware of the urgent need to still help the food pantry in these economic times, so we kindly urge you to consider donating any of these items directly to the pantry itself this year.
If you are looking for an opportunity to get out and help with a good cause, the New Melle Fire Protection District Auxiliary gladly welcomes new members to join us! The Auxiliary typically meets the second Wednesday of the month (Sept - June), at 7 pm, currently at Station 2 near the Hwy DD/D intersection.
