Fond memories of Christmas gifts

Public servants in Perrysburg Township have fond memories of their favorite Christmas gifts from years past.

Lisaanne Gregg, police dispatcher:

"My favorite Christmas gift was when I was 5, a life-size Raggedy Ann doll that was as tall as I was. I kept her until her feet fell off. That was just a few years ago."

Tom Brice, fire and EMS chief:

"I don't even remember getting a fire engine. I do remember getting an Emergency Johnny and Roy self-contained breathing apparatus. ... I remember wearing that all over the place. ... I wish I still had that. It would be worth some money."

Shirley Haar, fiscal officer:

"My daughter made me a hand print and tied it with a ribbon. She was 4 years old. I still have it. It was the greatest thing I ever got."
