Calendar winners ride in fire truck

Two third-graders from Matthew Thornton Elementary School were honored for their efforts in a state fire safety poster and calendar contest.

The Department of Safety, Office of the Fire Marshal and New Hampshire Fire Prevention Society organized the third-grade fire and safety art contest. The two local winners took honors in the poster category and will be featured in the first Fire and Life Safety School Year Calendar, 2013-2014.

Winning a spot on the calendar’s cover was Annabella Wu from Matthew Thornton Elementary. Maeve Ryan’s artwork will be featured in the calendar for the month of October. Firefighters offered students a ride home in a fire truck last week for their artistic efforts.
