🚒🚨Fire trucks but no fire! 🚨🚒

It’s the annual Shartlesville Volunteer Firemans’ Parade!  Volunteer fire companies from far and wide come for the day-long event – including 15 minutes worth of sirens and waving that goes right past our house. Thanks to all the brave men and women who are fire & rescue volunteers! 🚒💖🚒

Volunteers wanted.

An Adrenaline rush

Leadership Potential
