Louisville Daz 2003

The Louisville Volunteer Fire Department started Louisville Daz off with a pancake feed. Guess it was a little too early for Bub Heard and Wayne Chriswisser, as they were sitting on their job as cooks. Aaron McClun (left) was busy going back and forth restocking the pancake supply.

Troop 353 pauses to take a moment of silence to remember those who are serving in the armed forces during the parade for Louisville Daz.

The Louisville High School band marches down Main Street under the direction of band director Kevin White.

Watching the parade is alot of fun for kids and adults alike. Here Neil Hartzell holds nephew Aaron Tillema high enough not to miss anything, while Jessica Hartzell, Brad Hartzell, and Jake Snodgrass watch for the next entry ready to throw out candy.

Jayden Sjogren won the 'Decorate your tricycle' contest. She received a $25 dollar gift certificate for her decorated wheels. Jayden is the daughter of Tim and Kim Sjogren of Louisville.

Horses are always a great part of a parade. This just wasn't any horse though. The horse not being riden was being raffled off by the Carson Community Rodeo. The drawing won't be held until August, but if you were one of those purchasing a raffle ticket, you might just be the lucky winner.

Pastor Paul Blanchard helps with the Louisville United Methodist Church booth, to help earn some money for the building fund. If you were lucky enough to have the wheel land on your number, you got to take home the baked good of your choice.

The 'Wave of Fire' was a big hit. Here Nick Hammons (at right) bounces his way down as tries to maintain his balance somewhat. Nick is the son of Charles Hammons of Louisville.

This is just one of the rides that was a hit with those having the stomachs enough to withstand the spinning. The rain put a slight damper on the rides for a while, but it cleared off enough for those waiting patiently.

Wire Built does several web pages for businesses in the area. If you are needing a web page done give John or Irina Harrington a call.

The Louisville Methodist Church has been having their Sunday church services at the Louisville Senior Center. The church roof is in need of serious repairs. The church will be doing several fund raisers to help with the cost of the repairs along with donations.

September 11th was celebrated at the new Louisville sign with the Middle school students. Members of the Boy Scout troop raised the flag on the new pole and members of the choir sang at the festivities.


New fire truck put in service July 15th

$50,000 was donated by the Sunderland Family Foundation, and the rest was raised by a bond issue through the rural district.

The Fire Department showed their truck to
Camp Hot Shots, for diabetic kids Thursday, July 25th.

CUTLINE: A day camp for diabetic kids, called Camp Hot Shots got a visit at
Platte River State Park by a few different medical vehicles. One of those
was the new fire truck at Louisville. Volunteer Firemen Bub Heard and Bob
Hennings were able to attend and show kids the equipment. They got to see
what it was like to try on bunker gear and how heavy and hot it was. Other
vehicles were a squad, a Douglas County Sheriff vehicle and Life Flight.
