Hailey and Houston Schultz got a chance to check out the cab of a fire engine during Mighty Machines Day at Sylvan Lake Municipal Library Saturday afternoon. They were among 98 children who attended with their parents.

“We had fab weather,” said Heather Parker, the library’s children’s programmer.

The town sent a grader and a cool street sweeper. RCMP Cst. Gordon Marshall was there with a police cruiser and several firefighters accompanied the engine. Glover International provided a semi-truck with sleeper that doubled as a sofa and dance floor. “Too cool,” said Parker.

Inside there were crafts for the kids. Genivar provided everyone with a tape measure/level combo. Deermart once again provided the grand prize, a toy combine, which was won by Joseph Lauder, as well as a number of radio/book lights.

“We snacked on brownies and juice and read a great book, ‘Tip, Tip, Dig, Dig’ by Emma Garcia.”
