A fire truck's siren was substituted for reindeer bells as Santa Claus arrived in Coaldale yesterday evening during the 25th annual C.H.O.S.E. Community Tree Lighting event held outside the Coaldale borough hall.
In addition to Santa lighting the tree, the event consisted of carols, music, gifts and snacks for the kids. C.H.O.S.E. (Church, Home, Organization, School, Environment) holds the event every year free of charge to local children.
