A fire prevention and safety event originally slated for the fall is set to take place next month. The Community Foundation of the Lake will be sponsoring the event along with area businesses and fire protection districts July 14th in the Hy-Vee parking lot.
That’s Chris Wagner from Farmers Insurance, who provided a $10,000 grant to pay for a free smoke detector giveaway. It’s the third time the CFL has received the grant. The money goes into their disaster recovery fund to be used in the event of emergencies or disasters around the lake area.
