OCTOBER 13, 2012 - FALL DAYS & FARM WAYS - A BIG SUCCESS

Pantego's First Fire Truck

 Pantego bought their first fire truck used from Thalia VA.  When they sold the truck it went back home to Thalia.  An individual now owns the truck and has restored it.  He brought the truck back to Pantego for our 2nd Annual Fall Days and Farm Ways.  We were very honored to have him do this for us and we would like to thank him for his generosity.  How glad we are that our old fire truck will be around for a long time. 

 

On display for our day was Belhaven's first fire truck and several old cars, tractors, equipment, etc., corn sheller, grist mill, wash pot, water pumps, and a train for the kids to ride.  See pictures.
