An annual celebration in Southeast Kansas is on the horizon.
Galena Days 2018 is scheduled for Wednesday, May 30th through Saturday, June 2nd. Fire Chief Bill Hall says he is encouraging the public to come out to support the many events occurring throughout the week. There are a variety of activities happening each day including, musical performances, prizes, car shows, parades, and much more.
“The purpose it is of course is to help the Volunteer Fire Department, whatever’s left over. If we make any money, after it’s over we use it to buy equipment. We’ve got four sets of jaws of life, we’ve got 3 at cameras, and we buy all of this and we’re glad to do this to help city. And I’ve always told our guys if we’re not going forward, we’re going backwards,” says Bill Hall.
Hall also adds some of the other organizations benefiting from Galena Days includes local churches, fraternal, and civic groups. For more information about Galena Days you can visit the link we’ve provided here with a list of all scheduled events.
