Area fire departments from Spring Valley, Cherry, DePue, Ladd, LaMoille, Dalzell, Malden and Arlington made a little boy’s dream come true last weekend. Kellen Seifert, 4, of Clinton, Iowa, suffers from congenital lymphodema, which effects all his extremities. He wants to be a firefighter when he grows up, so the area firefighters treated him to a day of memorable experiences and sent him home with a helmet with his name on it signed by the firemen, patches from all of the local departments, T-shirts, a backpack from 10-33 Ambulance and much more.
