Tidying up Issa & Whimmpy
Not content with keeping their communities safe, firefighters with the Bandera Volunteer Fire Department - Assistant Chief Jason Anderssen, Luther Vanlandingham IV and Frank Fugle - took on another task the morning of Saturday, April 20. At the request of administrators of the Carson and Barnes Circus, they participated in an elephant wash and the community turned out for the fun event. The firefighters obligingly spiffed up the stars of the circus, Issa and Whimmpy. The elephants were refreshed for their 2 pm and 5 pm performances and local kids got to experience two of nature's marvels up close and personal.
