Small Town Life: Fire Department Open House

Our town has a volunteer fire department. They have two fundraisers each year, a barbeque and a combined open house – duck race. To those unfamiliar with duck races, they use rubber ducks. In our case “firefighter ducks”. People buy tickets which gives them a duck in the race. The owners of the ducks that come in first win prizes. Well, they don’t own the duck; they rent them for the day. It’s good fun and at the open house, children (and adults) can see and touch real fire engines. The funds raised are put towards new equipment for the fire department.

    Who doesn’t love rubber ducks! I once started a fad that lasted about a year at the Fed — putting rubber ducks in the fountain by the front entrance. Even the federal police officers loved them.
