Santa Claus and his friends made their annual visit to the Village Green on Saturday, Dec. 22, arriving by fire truck with sirens blaring and lights flashing, courtesy of the Great Neck Alert Fire Company.
For many years, Ex-Chief, Raymond Plakstis, Jr., his wife, Donna and sons Tyler and Ryan organized this very special community event. This year, the families of Raymond Plakstis, Jr. were on hand at the Village Green to continue this annual holiday tradition.
Ex-Chief Plakstis recently passed away from a 9/11-related illness.
Approximately 135 children met Santa and each child received a Christmas stocking filled with toys and candy.
