The biggest of thank you's goes to Lopez Island's wonderful new fire chief, J Havner, for taking the time out of his busy schedule to come share some of his fire-safety knowledge with the students in our elementary school (J & his wife Michelle also volunteer with the school in the Spring & let us use their barn & livestock for farming & animal-husbandry education).
A HUGE thank you to Caleb & Amy as well for sharing their EMT/fire expertise; the kids were enthralled! Many of my kiddos left the assembly saying how they couldn't wait to be a firefighter someday; warmed my heart.
Anyways, thanks everyone for helping out at our school & inspiring our students! I feel so blessed to live in such a supportive & involved community <3
