06/03/09 143 W, 1 I - + 9 - 8 Camp Celebrate This Weekend

Folks passing Triangle Towne Center on Friday afternoon will see some two dozen fire engines parked at the shopping mall, along with scores of excited kids. The apparatus, which will proceed in procession to Camp Kanata in Wake Forest, are part of Camp Celebrate, a weekend camping experience for children and adolescents who have survived burn injuries. Most have been treated at the N.C. Jaycee Burn Center, and whose staff will be joined from volunteers across the state including firefighters and Jaycees. This year's 28th annual Camp Celebrate runs June 5 through June 7. The trucks will be parked near Dillards, with apparatus in place by 1:30 p.m. The procession departs at 3:00 p.m. Though the forecast shows rain, expect sunny smiles from the riders as they head to camp.
