The prettiest Christmas tree in three counties, at the Mahopac Falls Fire Headquarters, was lost to the tornado that caused havoc back in May of this year. People would have the firehouse as their first stop when they would wrap up the family, grab some hot cocoa and head out for an evening of looking at light displays. Coming from miles around, folks were truly dismayed to see the tree gone and pictures of the tree that sustained extreme damage from the storm. Calls still come in from people wondering "will there be another tree"? This past week brought out the dedicated Mahopac Falls Elves (Stan Zalesny, George Tompkins, Art Wisotsky and Ed Kuck) culminating a three month search for just the right tree. A day was spent in preparation for its arrival and the tree now is at home at the corner of Luccaro Lane and School Street. Word is getting out that the tradition continues, although the tree measures at around 12 ft. it pales compared to the support from the people who always come out to support their fire department. Stay tuned for the flyers of the 2018 Tree Lighting in a few months and thank you for your continued support for the Mahopac Falls Volunteer Fire Department.

Thank you for your continued support of our FD, it is always appreciated, Jack Casey
