St. Joseph's student arrives at school in a fire truck

posted by Howard B. Owens in St. Joe's, City Fire, batavia, news.


Olivia Bezon's classmates cheered when Engine 11 pulled into the parking lot at St. Joseph's School this morning with the first-grader as a passenger.

As a winner in the City Fire Department's fire protection poster contest, Olivia got the ride in the fire truck this morning as part of her prize.

Great human interest story and photos, Howard. I appreciate you taking the time to include them on the Batavian. Olivia will remember that ride for the rest of her life, and it says much for our Batavia City Fireman. My little grandson, Graydon loves his toy firetrucks. He visited us last night and this morning I found a Matchbox red firetruck in my sneaker.
