REDMON, ILLINOIS On th edge of the prairie -
Way back in the early 1950s

They converted the old Redmon Bank into the volunteer fire department. It was located across the street from our house.
One of the first times that the fire siren was blown, it was blown by me and my big brother Bob. We had seen the switch being installed and the next day rode our tricycle over there. I can't remember which of us, but one steadied the trike and the other stood on the seat and flipped the switch. We ran like the wind back across the street and hid in the house. Farmers came from all over...headed to town to see what was going on. We had left our tricycle parked under the switch. It didn't take long to track down the culprits. We were in our bedroom hiding between the bed and the wall.
