The Fireman’s Dance on Saturday night was billed as an opportunity for our brave volunteers to thank the town of Dubois for its support (and ask for more). I turned out because, of course, I support our extraordinary fire-fighters but also, to be truthful, because not much else is going on just now.
Dancing aside, the chief entertainment on offer was the prospect of seeing our brave young men compete in a race on toy tricycles. I had no idea they would be racing in full fire-fighting gear including helmets! I also didn’t expect a small catastrophe …
You can read my full account of the event, in the form of a sports report, which appeared yesterday on the County 10 website (Dubois Volunteer Firefighters Rise to the Challenge Again). Here, you can enjoy the other pictures I wasn’t able to post there.
There’s nothing to tell about my dancing skills. I didn’t dance (though others did, and it was a pleasure to watch). I was too busy taking pictures.
