The Garden Valley School brought in many of the helpers including medical, fire department, forest service and big construction rigs. Students could come and visit with Smokey Bear and tour through the rigs or visit with volunteers about what they do. Jan Ward, GV School Kindergarten teacher set this night up so that students could see what community helpers do and not be afraid if they or their families needed help from these agencies. Goodies, toys and coloring books were handed out. Lots of horns and sirens were tried out by the curious students.
Community Helpers Night last Thursday, October 13.
