Field trip

Today was JMan’s field trip to downtown Fitchburg MA. We visited the Post Office, Firehouse, Library and the Mayors office. A few years ago I did the same outing with GMan.

First stop was the Gazebo for snacks.

Then it was off to the Post Office where all the kids mailed letters home.

Then all the kids got to wear Post Office shirts for a tour.

Apparently 1st grade weighs 750 LBS. I wonder how much it would be to mail them all off somewhere!

Fireman John started our tour in the dispatch room where all the 911 calls come to. From there we moved into the garage to check out all the trucks.

All the kids received library cards and picked out a book. Here’s JMan signing his library card.

Mayors Office

Everyone checked out books and we heading to the Mayors Office.

Mayor Lisa A. Wong came in and talked about all the things the city provides. Then we had a question and answer session and Mayor Wong addressed all manner of questions including one about the gas pipe line that may be coming. Here’s Mayor Wong showing off the new city flag.
