Several fire companies, including the Bowmansville, Farmersville and Fivepointville Fire Companies, will be holding a Fire Truck Parade at Fairmount in Ephrata on Saturday, August 20, starting at 1:30pm. They will be going first to the Farm Crest campus, on the east side, then continuing on to the west side, or Wheat Ridge campus, where they will park and greet Fairmount residents and other spectators. The public is invited to attend.

Former Fairmount resident Luke Nolt, who spent many months in Fairmount’s Rehab unit recovering from an accident a few years ago, is responsible for coordinating this event. He will be riding with the Bowmansville fire truck, and is eager to meet and talk with anyone who attends. Fire Safety packets will be available to hand out to the children.
