All Smiles at Police and Fire Department Open House.

Smiling trains your emotions to be happy.  Try it.  Smile for 30 seconds and you will feel happy.  Everyone was all smiles at the Portage Police and Fire Department Open House on Saturday, October 10.  The Portage Police were proud to show off their vehicles and demonstrate a stun gun on a volunteer, which created many nervous smiles.  The Portage Fire Department showed an impressive extraction demonstration to a packed crowd drawing a big applause.  City servants were smiling ear to ear and the families of the Portage left with bright eyes and happy hearts.

The Portage Family Skate Park is thankful to to the Departments for allowing us to set up our tent for a Bake Sale, bringing in $155, special thanks to Debbie Little and friends for all the extra baking.  Construction is just around the corner and we are having fun raising the last $8,000 for a $210,000 project.  We are building a better future in Portage, Wisconsin with all smiles.
