Rockaway’s‘Bravest’ Play Santa
Engine Company 265 and Ladder Company 121 recently played Santa to Jasmine Roldan, a 10 year old girl, and her family, who live in the Beach 41 Street Houses. After seeing Santa go into the firehouse on Beach 59 street, Jasmine wrote a letter to the firemen telling her story. Under the direction of Lt. Roche, the firemen raised $600 and purchased gifts, household items and a Christmas tree. They visited Jasmine and her family and surprised them with the gifts. The firemen were honored by Mayor Giuliani at a City Hall ceremony for their good deed.
