Oceanport First Aiders hosting holiday fun Saturday.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, the Oceanport First Aid and Rescue Squad are inviting everybody down to  for a  not to be missed.

The annual event is the volunteer organization's biggest fundraiser every year, and Second Lieutentant Maggie Lippolis hopes this year will be no different.

"It's a nice hometown thing and it's been going on for many years," said Lippolis. "We depend so much on this as a fundraiser to keep going."

The squad kitchen will make a breakfast sandwich for anyone who arrives at 9, and they'll serve up hot dogs and hamburgers around lunchtime.

The big event of the day is a 50/50 chance auction. The First Aiders will also be selling Christmas trees, grave blankets and wreaths throughout the day, and local crafters will have tables set up.

Lippolis said only 300 trees are up for sale this year, down from 400, as people's tastes change and some prefer artificial trees. Capt. Connor from the squad went to a farm in Pennsylvania to pick the trees up, and the local Boy Scouts helped offload them once they arrived in Oceanport.
