Mud Season: Although the worst of mud season is yet to come, it is always a good idea to limit travel on muddy roads as much as possible, giving them a chance to dry out. If using a muddy road is unavoidable, be sure to drive toward the center when possible. The shoulders are apt to be very soft adding to the chances of getting stuck or tipping over.
FIRE EXTINGUISHERS FOR SALE: Anyone want to buy a fire extinguisher? We have them for sale and there are 4 sizes available. See the Chief or stop by the fire station for more information if interested.
Dishes: Several dishes and platters have been left behind at the fire house from people holding functions at the station. Stop by and claim yours. We would like to return them to their rightful owners. Or you can contact anyone of the members of the department to check on yours.
