Working together…

MEEKER | The irrigation pump failed at Highland Cemetery in Meeker Monday, June 19, during one of the first heat waves of the season, leaving the grass without water from Monday through Friday while cemetery staff sought a replacement. With the new pump not expected to arrive until June 29, the Meeker Fire Department stepped in with their trucks, and supplied the water, to keep the grass green at the cemetery and help prevent fire danger for the Fourth of July fireworks display. Tom Allen, who was spraying weeds at the time, also pitched in, using the water on his truck to water the grass. Bobby Gutierrez photo
