Making Memories at Clark County Fair.

One of the displays I enjoyed at this year’s Clark County Fair was “The Old Firehouse”. It’s a display of over 40 Fire Engines and fire fighting equipment, dating from the 1800′s to current day. Many of the old engines have been beautifully restored, and just walking through the building tells a great visual story of how tied to the community firefighters were, and still are.

In fact, if you are going to the Clark County Fair on Monday or Tuesday, you will see some of our local heroes in action (in a good way!).

“Clark County Fire District 6 firefighters are helping make memories for medically fragile children living in our area. Five patients from the Legacy Children’s Center – Salmon Creek and their families will get to enjoy rides, play games, and grub on some fair food all for free.

A firefighter/paramedic and two EMTs accompany each child to ensure their safety while at the fair. The firefighters volunteer their time on behalf of the Local 1805 Professional Firefighters Union.

People’s Community Federal Credit Union provides money for food and games, while the fair and Butler Amusement provide ride, entry, and parking passes for the kids and their families.

Having a child with special medical needs can be stressful for a family both financially and emotionally. Memory Makers hopes to give these families a day free of stress and full of fun. We hope you can join us.” ~ Clark County Fire District 6
