For 80 years, West Peoria has had an active volunteer fire department. The quality of life we enjoy in West Peoria is funded by tax dollars that are managed by the department’s trustees and fund raisers that are run by the various volunteers. West Peorians should be very proud and thankful for the longevity of our many firefighting volunteers. If you are interested in joining this fine organization, contact Fire Chief Terry Schadt at 674-6615. The Department’s Ladies Auxiliary also needs members. For more information call 674-6615.
The Western Avenue Greenway is maintained by volunteers. The next work day is 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 25. Visit Western Avenue Greenway’s Facebook page site for history, contact information, pictures and opportunities.
