Department also having dance with music by Shane Martin; lots of other activities in Zimmerman planned
The Zimmerman-Livonia Fire District invites the public to its open house and firemen’s dance on Sept. 11.
The open house will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a dance for adults 21 years of age and up from 8 p.m. to midnight inside the community room of the new fire station. Tickets for the dance are $7 at the door or $5 in advance. Shane Martin will perform at the dance.
In addition to looking forward with the new station, the public will have a chance to look back with a memorial to fallen firefighters on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on America.
