Fanning the flames of a little girl’s dream
by Kat Wiirre
Fire Prevention Week is observed every year in October. This year, the Hewitt Fire Department was asked to help make a Bertha-Hewitt student’s dream come true.
Chris and LeAnne McDaniel, former Hewitt residents who currently reside in the Wadena area, called Hewitt Mayor Miles “Smiley” Wiirre to help them with a birthday surprise for their daughter Kenzy McDaniel who attends the Bertha-Hewitt School.
Kenzy turned 10 years old on October 6. For several years she has been telling her parents that when she grows up she wants to be a firefighter.
Her older sister Jasmine supported Kenzy and her dream by purchasing her a firefighter outfit for her birthday gift. . .
