For this months Cloverbud 4 H meeting, we visited a local volunteer fire department. The children got to learn some fire safety, see fire equipment and clothing, and learn about the different types of fire trucks. They also talked about the weight and cost of the equipment and what you have to do to become a fireman. They did not get to drive the truck like Christian hoped, but they did get to hear the siren.
I have to tell you, it was so hot!! It has been over 100 degrees here all week and at 5:30 during our meeting time it had not cooled off at all and of course there was no air conditioning. There were some big, loud fans that couldn't be turned on or the children wouldn't be able to hear. Our next 2 months OF meetings will be indoors making things for the upcoming County Fair.
