Thanks for a great party

We would like to thank Mike Cabral, Bill Marsh and the Jamestown Fire Department for hosting a great birthday party for our son Ryan's ninth birthday.

Chief Jim Bryer and the fire department donated the party as an auction item for the Jamestown school PTO golf tournament fundraiser, which we won.

Not only did Mike and Bill volunteer to be there to entertain 20 kids on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, but they went the extra mile to ensure the kids had a great time.

They taught the kids about how the fire department worked and what each piece of equipment was used for. Mike climbed the fire truck ladder many times to make sure each child received a turn and was safe, and Bill gave rides on the fire truck to very excited children.

Both young men answered a lot of questions and were patient and kind through the whole party. The party would not have turned out nearly as well without their help.

Thanks again to everyone involved to make Ryan's birthday one he will never forget. Lance Downing Jamestown
