"Our hope is that these children will grow up to be responsible residents of Munroe Falls, and possibly a Councilmember, police officer, firefighter or mayor." The day will start when the third-graders arrive at City Hall at 9:15 a.m., said Larson. Following a short welcome, students and teachers will tour the building.The students will become acquainted with the City Hall offices, City Council Chambers and the police and fire stations during the event.

Throughout the day, students will divide into groups and visit the fire and police departments and the Munroe Falls Historical Museum next door to City Hall.Students will be able to hold a fire hose while visiting the fire station, and while visiting the police station, students will have their photographs and fingerprints taken, said Larson. When the students head to the museum, they will tour the building and learn about the history of Munroe Falls. "We want the children to see the history of their hometown and learn why it is so important to preserve that history," said Larson.The day is set to wrap up at 2 p.m., after a question and answer session in Guise Park, behind City Hall.For more information, call Munroe Falls City Hall at 330-688-7491.E-mail: kcasale@recordpub.comPhone: 330-686-3917
