Our Community Make a Wish tree is up for the season. Stop by and make a wish

This year’s “2020 Vision Make a Wish Tree” in the front yard of Gerald York Opticians on Finley Avenue will be decorated with used eyeglasses, Snellen eye charts, and visitors’ Visions for the new year. The tree will be set up the same time the Basking Ridge Fire Department is decorating the town tree (Sat, Nov. 28 from 9:30-11:30). Drive by to support the Fire Company and help “Fill the Boot” and get a local business coupon book and free gift while supplies last.

For the entire holiday season, residents can stop by, donate a pair of used glasses to the tree, and write a 2021 vision/wish to hang on the tree for all to read.

1949 - Santa arrives by Plane to Visit Toyland
. On November 26, 1949 Santa arrived at the Basking Ridge Airport and joined the parade to Toyland. How great was it that you could mail a letter to Santa and then join the other "kiddies" to meet Santa as well.https://www.google.com/calendar/event?eid=M2hndjBuMzZodmhwdDM1cTdvdGVzMDdwYm5fMjAyMDExMjYgcTN2N2E0MDQzZTZia2U2cWFzNW02bXZjcG9AZw
