LHNA Adopts Fire Station 17

Lakewood Heights Neighborhood Association (LHNA) has taken on a new community project to say “we appreciate you” to the firemen who keep us safe.

LHNA has adopted Fire Station 17 located at the corner of Belmont and Skillman.  We visited with the Captain, Steve, and what we heard from him, with strong agreement from all the men that were there, was they really would like (and need) new furniture for the area where they gather when they are on duty.

Having sat in the furniture it really is disappointing to think that all the City can provide is some very hard uncomfortable chairs and a beat up leather couch.  (The men have ingeniously created a wooden bench covered with a thin strip of old carpet to put their feet up, but really to keep from sliding off the couch which suffers from a steep downward incline from age!)

So here is your opportunity to donate some gently used furniture for a great cause.  We aren’t going to shoot for a “designer” look but we do want to put something together that looks and feels comfortable. If you have a large couch (or sectional), recliner, comfy chairs, tables or lamps that you can donate, please notify Wendeline Jongenburger at wendeline@earthlink.net.  The space is small so we don’t need much, but I think we can do a lot better.  They could also use a couple of computer chairs for their dispatch desk. Also, if anyone has contacts that might get us a good deal from a consignment shop or inroads to a donated flat screen…that would be fantastic.

Stay tuned for notice of our grand reveal with a chance to meet the firemen, tour the station and let the kids sit on the big, red fire engines!
