Santa Claus is coming to the beach!

A large group of volunteer elves, many who wish to remain anonymous, have worked tirelessly to prepare Town Hill to receive Santa and Mrs. Claus this coming Saturday. The volunteers have decorated the hill, setting up lights, decorations, sound equipment and activity areas. There is also a nice gingerbread house to receive Santa and Mrs. Clause.
With the help of Public Works, the group has lined Colonial and Washington with snowflake lights to lead Santa to the Winter Wonderland on the Hill.
The event is hosted by the Colonial Beach Chamber of Commerce but is only successful due to the volunteers.

Town emergency shelter in need

Despite massive preparations, Colonial Beach Emergency Response Team feels they are not prepared for a direct hit from a storm like Sandy.

The boardwalk was cleared of benches and trash cans, buildings boarded up and sand bags dispersed. Town officials kept residents notified through instant alert of the impending storm, school closings and shelter openings. The town even identified streets prone to flooding. Public Works readied generators to run the water pumps, and police, fire, rescue, public works and town officials all stayed in contact, with the police station as their central command center. Town Manager Val Foulds stayed in town overnight throughout the storm.
