Wonderful Open House - Tavern Fire! The antique fire trucks that responded to the alarm from box 212 on July 25, 1967, plus Bill Klauer, the original fireman who answered the call were there. Over 50 parties toured the Tavern, heard Bill's description of the fire, talked with today's firemen, checked out the antique trucks, and got a look at Acton's newest truck - Engine #26, the show-off piece of the day. Kids had a blast 'driving' all of the trucks. Many thanks to all who partook in the day.
