In honor of Firefighter Appreciation Day on May 4, members of the West End Elementary School Student Council in the Lynbrook Public Schools created goodie bags for the brave individuals at the East Rockaway Fire Department.
The goodie bags consisted of small candies and snacks, each specifically selected for a particular reason. Each bag featured a tag labeled “Firefighters Survival Kit” and listed what the candy and snacks meant. For example, the goodie bag included a lifesaver candy because firefighters save lives. Student council members hoped that this small token of appreciation would put smiles on the faces of their local heroes.
1) West End fourth grader Isabella Ehmsen helped assemble the goodie bags.
2) Student council member Leo Krokoff put candy in each of the goodie bags for the brave men and women in the East Rockaway Fire Department.
3) The West End Student Council created goodie bags consisting of specific candy and snacks as a thank you to the local firefighters for Firefighter Appreciation Day.
