Meeting Theme: Fire Safety
Much thanks to my mom, Sonia Walden, for making arrangements with the Goochland County Fire Department to visit the Eager Beavers at Richmond Academy today. I also want to thank firemen Matthew Smith, Scott Walker, and Billy McGuire for giving the children an exciting fire safety lesson.
Eager Beaver Cheer
We opened our meeting with our Eager Beaver Cheer, which recites the pledge that the children are supposed to memorize this year. Then, we had opening prayer.

Fire Safety Lesson
Firemen Scott Walker, Billy McGuire, and Matthew Smith showed the Eager Beavers what a fireman looks like if he has to come and rescue them. They showed that firemen look out for each other and have different alarms on them to alert each other if one is in trouble.
The firemen also answered the key 3 questions Eager Beavers must know.
