The students went on a walking tour of the downtown area visiting locations such as City Hall, the police department, UCDA, courthouse, First United Methodist Church and getting an up-close look at a fire truck and fire-fighting equipment. In addition to learning about the various offices and departments, the children were able to have refreshments at the Methodist Church while teacher Amy Welborn read stories.
