July 4th Festivities


paypal_donate_button_firefirefighters_wivesThe fireman kept us safe last year during the extreme heat and drought but it was unfortunate due to the burn ban and county wide ban on fireworks that Decatur County was unable to hold its annual fireworks display. We all  know that with the bad comes the good and the fireman’s wives are organizing an event this year that is sure to heat things up.
