100 Years of Service to the Community
The Huron/North Rose Fire District celebrated the North Rose Fire Hall's 100th year this past weekend (10-12 July). It started with a parade on Friday, with participation of local officials, fire halls and businesses. The support and response of fire halls from surrounding areas as far as Lincoln, was impressive - the fire trucks and emergency response equipment glistening in the sun. As residents of these communities, we expect to see shiny chrome polished fire trucks, but tend to overlook the time, energy, love and care that goes into maintaining them that way, not to mention the investment of time to keep us safe. To all those uniformed emissaries of mercy - thank you!
The Town of Huron was represented at the head of the parade with two vehicles from the Highway Department with Supervisor Laurie Crane, Town Clerk Tammy Vezzose, Councilman David Buisch and the Josh and Tiffany Smith family. Both vehicles reflected the care given the Town's equipment by the Highway Department under the supervision of Richard Reyn, but the truck maintained and driven by Josh Smith, with its bellowing horn stole the show - the three year-old vehicle looked like it just rolled off the assembly line, truly impressive!
