Fire-fighting fun, barbecue dinner offered in family day event on Sunday
A fun family day to support fire safety education will be held Sunday, April 23, in the Village Green, downtown Ripon.
Phi Delta Theta will sponsor Fire Safety Day with a chicken barbecue, a hilarious firefighter obstacle course and children’s activities. J’s BBQ will be open for this event only on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., including a half-chicken dinner with sauce, two sides and a pickle. Tickets must be purchased in advance by Friday.
Enjoy your meal while you watch the members of Phi Delta Theta run laps downtown wearing full turnout fire-fighting gear and teams competing in a firefighter obstacle course. Ripon firefighters will give children tours of fire trucks and engage them in fire safety-themed activities.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for college students and children. You may purchase tickets until Friday from members of Phi Delta Theta in the Commons, by contacting Phi Delta Theta faculty advisor Jody Roy (748-8712 or [email protected]), or at the courtesy counter at Webster’s grocery store.
All proceeds from meal purchases and direct donations will support fire safety education efforts of the Ripon Area Fire Department.
