Happy New Year. Thank you for all you have done in this unusual and challenging 2020.

LACEY FIREFIGHTERS CHRISTMAS CHARITY
December 13 Sunday In conjunction with the Adopt-a-Family program, Lacey Sunrise and Midday Lions join the LFD to help 48 families (150-175 kids) with Christmas gifts. Families drive through Fire Department 34 (across from Ostrom’s Mushroom Farm::8407 Steilacoom Rd SE), stopping at stations gifts and a wave to Santa on his truck. On 9 Dec, we got together to wrap gifts we purchased for the family. From left: Pat, Linda, Peggy, Frankie, Kathy, Joel, Dave
