This summer instead of their annual street dance the Exeter Fire Department joined the Exeter Sons of the Legion to put on a car show and BBQ at the Exeter Legion. The event also featured a polka band which was very popular.
Rescue Captain Hope Strate was encouraged with the event, “We had a lot of interest and a great turnout. We hope to make it more of a village event next year.”
