I looked out the window Monday morning to see this engine from Swoope Volunteer Fire Department on the street in front of my house. I'm glad they know my neighborhood in case we ever need them.
It wasn't the first time they had been on our street. We have been lucky to have Firefighter Santa show up in the past: We Threw a Party and Santa Showed Up! and Santa Showed Up On a Fire Truck.
Many thanks to Chief Kevin Wilkes and all the men and women of SVFD for their time, energy, and service to the citizens of Augusta County and Pastures District.
