Brownie troop honors those who serve
To honor the sacrifices first responders make every day, members of West Linn Junior Brownie Troop 45525 spent a portion of their Sept. 11 meeting discussing the importance of these professionals.
The girls wanted to do something to recognize West Linns fire department so they created a thank you banner, and a handful of girls delivered it and some Thin Mints to the firefighters on staff that evening.
Firefighters Ahren Dykman, Lawrence OKeefe and Harvey Bilton showed the girls the station and the refurbished steam engine and spent time speaking to them about their jobs.
Photos of these local heroes and the girls were shared with those who werent on staff during the visit, including the captain, although they couldnt say the same for the cookies.Add a comment
