Poland Union Elementary School students walked to the Village Fire Department on South Main Street on Oct. 27 to hand deliver letters to the firefighters.

The students throughout the school wrote more than 200 letters to the fire department to thank them for their service. A group of 12 randomly selected students walked to the fire station to deliver the letters and talk to the firefighters.

Cocca’s Pizza provided pizza and drinks to the students. The school works with the pizza company on a variety of events.

The students met volunteer firemen Ian Harker and Jake Ezzo, firefighter and Poland trustee Bob Lidle and Fire Prevention Officer Bill O’Hara. The firemen spoke to the students about volunteering and fighting fires. They sat with the children as they all ate.

After eating, the fire department took them downstairs to see the fire trucks and equipment. The students’ families joined them as they got downstairs and toured the station with the students. The families took the opportunity to take pictures of the children inside and on the fire trucks.
