Hooray for a Parade!

May 21, 2020

Family and friends held a parade for the members on Tuesday, May 19th. The members held up signs and waved at the parade participants, and the parade participants displayed signs on their vehicles or held them high in the air and yelled their hello's to all of the members and staff. The parade was led by retired Fireman Jeff Morey driving the fire truck and honking the horn with the parade vehicles following behind. What a fun afternoon for all!!
