Main photo: Clearwater’s Fire Chief for a Day Reyna Myhre (third from left) and Deputy Chief Abigail Wright (second from left) celebrate winning a free lunch. With them for the free food are Reyna’s friend Evan (first left) and Abigail’s friend Phoenix (fourth from left) and fire chief (for 364 days a year) Mike Smith (r). To enter the contest, the Grade 4 students needed to complete fire prevention education and fire safety plans with their families and hand entry forms back to their teacher. The winners were drawn on the day the fire department attended Raft River Elementary School for Fire Prevention Week. Their prizes included being picked up from the school at lunchtime and taken to lunch in the firetruck. Clearwater A&W has sponsored the lunch since 2010.
