This was a fund-raising event for the future Kewaunee Fire Museum. The Fire Department owns and has beautifully restored several pieces of fire equipment that were on display at the time of the event. It could not have been a more beautiful day to view and photograph these engines! Enjoyed reading the information about each piece of equipment and how it was used; learned a lot, especially about the dangers early firefighters faced from the chemicals used to put out the fires.
