For those of you looking for something to do on Saturday with the students or any kids.... The New York New York City Fire Department (FDNY) is hosting an open house in honor of their 150th Anniversary. Great idea to take the kiddies for a few, say hi to your local firefighters and thank them for their service. Also a good idea to get info on future careers!!! http://www.nyc.gov/html/fdny/html/events/2015/fdny_openshouse.shtml
