Does your home need a smoke detector or
two? The Ball Play Fire Department in cooperation with the Ball

will install new or replace old detectors if you will call him at
295-2237. Interested parties will need to provide their name,
address, phone number and be residents of the Ball Play fire
district. Smoke detectors save lives and the fire department
wants everyone who needs them to have them. Additionally, the
men will inspect your old detectors and clean dryer vents in an
effort to reduce the risk of fire.
Happy birthday to Darrell Lynn, Bob
Schrader and Terry Williams.
