Fireman’s Picnic

Today was our second annual fireman’s picnic. I got there around 8:30 this morning to help clean up and set up, and left around 6:00. It was a long day but I think everyone had a good time. We did a pretty good job raising money again this time too. There was lots of food, and I am proud of myself for resisting almost all of it. If our house had as much food out as this event did, I’d weigh 300#.

No one used it for the longest time, so I finally grabbed two sons of one of our volunteer firefighters and showed them how to work it. After that lots and lots of people tried. This picture is from last year’s festival, because I didn’t take a picture of it this year. The object is to move water from the big tub to a 5 gallon pail that is just outside the frame of this picture by just pulling on the ropes. It can be done, but it is hard.
