Nolan County 4-H is selling chances to win a framed un-authenticated Railroad savings bond. Chances are $1 each and those interested are encouraged to stop by Tractor Supply on Saturday, March 24, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to purchase chances for the drawing. The drawing will be Monday, April 9. For more information, contact Tasha Baxter at 235- 3184. After Saturday chances can be bought at the Nolan County Extension office. The funds raised will go to help restore Freddie the Fire Truck.
Freddie the Fire Truck is an exciting tool for teaching fire safety. A fully animated fire truck robot, Freddie moves, speaks, listens, plays audiocassette tapes and sounds his siren, all by remote control. He can wink, blink and move his eyes and with his smiling mouth he presents a positive and friendly image to young and old alike. He can be used with great success in school classrooms, assemblies, station tours, shopping mall exhibits, state and local fairs and any other setting where a program is represented.
Heâ€™s just the right size for teaching children. He can communicate with them at their eye level and when he moves heâ€™s not at all threatening. Heâ€™s perfect for hugs and kisses from small friends. Heâ€™s agile enough to maneuver easily in school classrooms and other restricted areas. With his headlights, taillights and flashing warning lights he is highly visible.
Freddie is available to visit any pre-school, kindergarten or elementary building within the county.
