Keep the Wreath Red
Each year the Spring Grove Fire District puts up a wreath decorated with red holiday lights symbolizing their hope that you will take special care with your holiday decorations. If a fire occurs that was caused by a holiday decoration, a red bulb is replaced with a white one. Fires can be caused by faulty holiday lights, candles and other decorations. Please be careful and help keep the wreath red this holiday season.View more here.
