Firefighters, kids cool down at annual fundraiser
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– An ominous morning turned into a beautiful day for the North Liberty Fire Department’s annual Salute to Summer fundraiser last Saturday, Aug. 20, at Bobber’s Grill and Scales Pointe Campground.
Around 600 attended the event, said fire Capt. Chris Kochanny, which is fewer than normal. Still, he said it was one of the better events since the weather was cooler.
“In years past we’ve had issues with people getting too hot, especially kids in bouncy houses,” he said.
The only downside, he noted, was the wind.
