Friends of Swan Lake helped with fire truck


The little boy's delight in "driving" the Swan Lake firetruck was fun to see on the front page of Thursday's Sumter Item. However, a glaring omission in the information about the firetruck needs correction. Had it not been for the long-term efforts of the Friends of Swan Lake, the fire truck would still be sitting at the fire training site, rusting away and neglected. True, it was a joint effort of the parties mentioned, but it would not have happened without the vision, interest and guidance of the Friends. Please give credit where it is due!
