Help the Millet firefighters spread Christmas cheer.

It’s Christmas time, and all of the community’s holiday traditions are in full swing, including attending the Millet Fire Department’s “Fill the Fire Truck with Toys” Dec. 17.

Millet firefighter Kyle McNichol provided some information about the second annual event in support of the Millet Lions Club Christmas hamper program. He said the Millet firefighters put on a holiday music performance using their fire trucks: they key the sirens and lights to holiday music.

Do they use high-tech equipment for that? No way, said McNichol. The firefighters do it all by hand in the truck.

The Christmas music performance is being offered to support a very worthy program, the Lions hampers which help out less fortunate local families.

McNichol said the fire department would love to see people bring along donations to the musical performance. New, unwrapped toys for kids of all ages and gift cards are preferred.

Everything begins at the Millet Fire Hall Dec. 17 at 6:30 p.m. McNichol said everyone is welcome.
