In order to celebrate their 130th anniversary, the North Judson-Wayne Township Volunteer Fire Department will be holding an open house at their fire station next month.
Clerk-Treasurer Andrew Rowe said event details were provided when the Town Council met Tuesday night. It will be held from noon until 5 p.m. on Saturday, October, 12th.
They’ll have a variety of food options available and there will be some other giveaways.
Coincidentally, this celebration recognizing the founding of the Department coincides with National Fire Prevention Week and Fire Safety Awareness Month.
Back at a meeting in March, Fire Chief Joe Leszek mentioned that the Department received a $4,000 grant through the Starke County Community Foundation that they planned to spend on safety materials and smoke alarms for the open house.
