The weather played along

The weather played along for the Health and Safety Fair that was held last weekend at the Kitimat Fire Department. The District of Kitimat, the Fire Department, Search and Rescue and the RCMP were among the organizations that set up displays and organized an afternoon of fun and activities. Free hot dogs were also handed out after the youngsters had worked up an appetite.
