Letter: A thank you to Kaneville Fire Department

By on April 17, 2014

I wanted to take a moment and thank the Kaneville Fire Department for the wonderful Easter egg hunt they held for the community on Saturday, April 12.

Our family moved here not too long ago from a large city, and we have never seen anything like what the kind folks at the Kaneville Fire Department did for us all last weekend. We were amazed at how they moved all the trucks out of the fire station, set up tables and provided a wonderful free lunch. They had the trucks on display for the kids to see, and an Easter bunny there to visit with the kids. The folks at the Fire Department were so warm and welcoming. And then the best part was the walk down the street behind a fire truck leading the way to the egg hunt. Normally my children are lucky if they ever get five to 10 eggs in a hunt. At this egg hunt they each ended up with 50 eggs! I was shocked at the amount and how generous the good folks were with this egg hunt.

We have decided small towns are awesome, especially Kaneville, when it comes to giving to the community. We want to thank all who helped with and provided this wonderful egg hunt for our family. Everything was wonderful and we are so thankful to you for your great kindness and generosity.
