The Family Resource Council sponsored the annual wheel rally at the fire fall Thursday April 27. Despite the cold weather, an energetic group of children and parents attended. While there, children were treated to an up close view of a variety of vehicles. They had the opportunity to explore an ambulance and fire truck from the inside out, and have a chance to meet and visit with our local firefighters and emergency personnel. Alongside of these big vehicles were also village vehicles, a bulk truck, and the Pepin Police and Pepin County sheriff’s squads.
As a finale, box car races were held and mini race cars, bubbles, and checkered race flags were given to each one in attendance. This activity came together as a result of many people working together. “We are so fortunate to live in a community where we can all enjoy coming together to provide such a unique opportunity to our children,” stated Mrs. Riesgraf.
Thank you to everyone who assisted in making this event such a success!
