On Sunday a record number of children and their families showed up at the Manchester Fire Station to see Santa Claus off before his ride around Manchester, Beverly Farms and Magnolia.  Many had last-minute requests for the “Big Man” before his return to the North Pole.  Below, from left to right, are some members of the team that made it happen, including Call Firefighter Chris Doucette, Lieutenant Jim Doucette, Firefighter Jon Happel, Santa (the guy with the white beard), Captain Tod Biggar and Firefighter Andrew Herendeen.
