I wanted to make sure that all parents were aware that Friday is an early dismissal - 2 1/2 hours, to be exact. So make sure you have planned accordingly. See you at the game Friday night. Open house at fire station Saturday, Oct. 10, should be a big day for the firetruck enthusiasts in your family. The Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. will open its station to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be firetruck rides, and loads of information and demonstrations.
