An annual event to raise money for smoke detectors has been set for May.
The Evans Middle School Student Council will be holding the 15th Annual Fire and Ice Ice Cream Social at Ottumwa’s North Fire Station. This years event is set for May 3 from 5-7 p.m. The event features ice cream as well as tours of the fire department.
