Christmas 2005 at the Walkerton, VA Fire House
The Walkerton Fire House, Walkerton, VA is located on the banks of the beautiful Mattaponi River in King and Queen County. Walkerton is a small town that is filled with community spirit and involvement.  On December 3, 2005 the volunteer staff of firemen provided a free pancake breakfast to thank the community for all they have done for them over the past year.  A visit from Mr. & Mrs Claus was welcomed by all -- old and young alike.  A Brunswick Stew fund raiser was held that same day - photos of the crew cooking the stew in their huge outdoor pot can also be seen below.  Many of Mizpah United Methodist Church of Walkerton members were present for the event.
