October 2017
Fire safety month takes place during the entire month of October; however, fire departments designate the second week of October as Fire Prevention Week. Fire
Prevention Month is rooted in the Great Chicago fire of 1871 that killed more than 250 people. Sandy Creek / Lacona has experienced many fires and the next few columns are meant to honor our volunteer firemen and women. The first fire in 1828 burned the tannery established by John B. Smith in 1826.

The Girl Scout Christmas Tree event, a Sandy Creek community service project which began in 2003, is in its 14th year. Artificial trees are decorated and displayed at the Soup Kitchen on Salisbury Street. Any youth group from any community wishing to participate can call Rae Allen at 387-3666. A small artificial tree and handmade ornaments are all that is needed. The theme this year is “winter wonderland.” All entries are due by November 9th and voting will take place all of November, trees to be distributed by Christmas to a needy family or elderly person.
