Fire Department Get Together

Our neighborhood hosted a dinner cookout for our local firefighters, who were doing a training exercise and updating our neighborhood assessment.

Willem cooked burgers and dogs for us on Jim Wheat’s 747 size grille, and our neighbors brought food to share. The 25-30 firefighters had a great time, were well fed, and enjoyed touring the hangar/homes and several stand alone hangars. Our thanks to Willem and Alice for the use of their hangar and to all of the neighbors who joined us for fine dining. Note two tanks on the grille.
