Congrats on the new rig WF, good luck with it and may God bless it in service. Love the wet-down! Who is the Yankee that made that happen?

That’s been happening in the county for a while now Jeff. Figured we’d bring a little tradition back to the service.

Yeah, I remember seeing a few dedications around the county in recent years. Glad to see it, and was really surprised to see an actual “wet-down”.

Those that have never been to a Northern wet-down would love it; neighboring departments come, games and rides for the kids, beer truck/tent for the adults, food….just a big ol’ party and celebration dedicating the new ride. Then the big water fight….good times.
