ARLINGTON — For more than two decades, the Arlington Fire Department has been delighting local children, and helping the Arlington Community Food Bank stock its shelves for the holidays, through its annual "Santa Run" food drive, and from Dec. 6-15, Arlington firefighters and community volunteers will again be escorting Santa Claus on a festively decorated fire truck through several of the town's neighborhoods during the evenings.
