Pembroke Firemen Visit
October is Fire Prevention Month and on October 22, Pembroke Volunteer Fire Dept. firemen, Brent Ellinwood and Pete Hilyard, brought two of their fire trucks to visit children at the library who participate in the Friday afternoon Bookmark Bunch Story Time. After Miss Bonnie read "The Fire Station" by Robert Munsch, the firemen demonstrated their equipment, explained the importance of a Family Fire Escape Plan and "Stop,Drop and Roll." Everyone then went outside for a close-up view and explanation of the fire trucks. Each child was invited to sit in the drivers seat of the big engine and pull the horn. What fun!
Children surround Miss Bonnie during Story Time.
