“I’ve been the Chief for six years, but this is our fifth annual –Because of Covid,” Chief says it was his idea to start Operation Blue Star and it seems to have been a great success.

Families were wrapped around the building just to have their kids receive a toy, take a picture with santa and greet one of the City members.

As with most of the City events, DJ Mando provided some holiday cheer to kids as they took pictures. The backdrops and decorations to take a photo with Santa and the Grinch were supplied by It’s a Jolly Thing. Also, Chief Diaz mentions they were able to give out oranges to kids and families as well that were donated by Mid-Valley Farms.

Afterward, any leftover toys they had were given to Fire Department to pass out along with 4,000 candy bags the Fire department put together. Chief Phinney says “[between] Santa Maria, Bluetown, and La Feria,” he says “We had almost 30 people in the fire station Tuesday night; We made 4,000 candy bags.” These were all distributed on Christmas day, Sunday December 25th.
