Much appreciation to the one - or many - who have to manage this schedule. It's got to be so complicated with so many neighborhoods to track. We know your first priority is our safety, so the fact that you do this is a great kindness. I'll offer on behalf of Hockessin,, thank you for your service and contributions to this community. Safe travels, Santa!
