Fireman's Spaghetti Dinner

We will always be among the first to sign up for tickets to the annual Fireman's spaghetti dinner because we want to pay homage to the people who help and save lives of our residents.  We've many times seen the big fire truck and ambulance enter the park in time of need so this is a small way of saying thank you for their service.  
The Chief certainly looked sharp in his full dress uniform!

Our professional fire fighters cooked and served over 325 meals to a sell out crowd last Friday.

There were quite a few young high school students and recent grads who completed their fire course classes during the school year as members of a CAVIT program.  When they graduate, they will be fully qualified for a career as a fireman and/or EMT.  Wonderful program!  As a retired teacher, I believe our schools need more of this type of educational program.
