Daif Family 10 Random Acts of Kindness

Monday, December 15, 2014  On Monday December 15th two young children from the area came to visit Flagtown Fire.  Little Thomas and Anthony Daif brought cookies to our firehouse and explained to us that in the 10 days leading up to Christmas they would be performing 10 random acts of kindness starting with our firehouse!  In appreciation for their kindness the children were given a tour of the firehouse and the trucks.  The members of Flagtown Fire greatly appreciate this gesture of kindness.  Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness and may your random acts of kindness inspire others to do the same.
