It takes many people to make an event like this all come together and we are very grateful for each and every person that helped work the stands or even donated a cake for the cake wheel. Without the support of our community and the people mentioned above we the Milroy Fire Co. and EMS would not be able to do what we do and that is to serve and protect the people of Armagh Township. If we have forgotten anyone it certainly was not done intentionally, we are grateful to everyone and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
