What a day!

Yesterday was one of the most incredible days of my life! Sparkles had the time of her life. It was a great day and a wonderful way to reinforce fire safety messaging as well as to recognize the two girls that were able to get their families out safely because of what they learned from the book, Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog. We are so very thankful that the children and their families were able to get out safely.

Below are two parts of the videos of the presentation:
