Annual DOVFD July 4th Parade and Picnic
Members of the DOVFD are making preparations for this fun annual event. They need volunteers to help set up and cleanup and to help with food, drinks and games. Students in need of volunteer community service hours for school and other organizations find this is a perfect and easy way to pick up some of those required hours. Needed are items or services to auction off with all proceeds going to the fire department. You can find more information about the DOVFD and the annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic at www.dovfd.org.
If you wish to volunteer, donate items for auction or be a sponsor, please contact the DOVFD Fire Station at 972-539-7683 or Assistant Chief Kathy Heimerdinger.
Remember to start getting those floats ready for the parade. Let’s make this year’s event one of the biggest and best ever. There will be lots of good food, drinks, music, fun for kids and adults, and, neighbors to visit with.
There are several properties across town that need to trim tree limbs that hang over a street. Tree limbs are required to be 12 feet or higher. Please check the trees on your property and bring them up to code.
