G U R U | D I E I 0 P U $ N I Wells * Pumps I Dozens of children gathered Sunday afternoon, April 5, for a visit with the Easter Bunny and to collect some of the 1,000-plus Easter eggs hidden in Willow Creek Park. The plastic eggs were filled with candy, and children also received prizes. Cookies and juice were served as well. This event, a first in Kimball, was made possible by volunteers and by donations by local businesses. Photos by Jean Doran Matua. Fireman's breakfast was a record success A record 1,282 people turned out for this year's Kimball Fire- men's Relief Association pancake breakfast. This was the thirty-sec- ond year of the event which is the primary fundraiser for our local volunteer fire department. They started running out of food, and had to make several trips to Knaus and Gohmann's; but no one left unfed. Besides a wonderful breakfast (not just pancakes, but Knaus sau- sage, French toast, and scrambled eggs), the fire department got to show off, for the first time, its latest acquisition: the 1948 Internation- al fire truck that was the depart- ment's very first new fire truck. The truck had been kept in stor- ate for decades, and has now been fixed up to run beautifully. Watch for it in parades this summer! The proceeds from the annu- al breakfast go toward purchas- ing needed equipment for the fire department. Although most of the trucks and equipment is paid for with private donations, grants, and gambling proceeds, the breakfast money allows the department to buy a rescue boat, for instance. This year they plan to buy a second thermal-imaging camera which will allow firefight- ers to locate people inside a burn- ing building when it's too smoky to see them. These and dozens more photos of the fireman's breakfast and the Easter egg hunt are available in a slideshow at our Web site.
