Lethbridge family dentist Karstan Lachman participated in the recent ‘Dentist Head Shave’ fundraiser for the Lethbridge Regional Hospital radiation bunker and the Canadian Cancer Society for kids cancer.
Together they raised $75,000.00 in total of which $8,800.00 alone was raised by Dr. Lachman and his team!
This is an original 1947 LaFrance fire truck. It operated in Lethbridge as Pumper #4 from 1947-1979 when it was sold to the Barons Fire Department.
Dr. Lachman rescued this truck from the auto salvage yard. All of the original chrome fittings and gauges were donated to the Lethbridge Fire Department to help restore Pumper #3 to its original glory. Pumper #3 is now used in parades and community events around town.
Some of our firefighter patients actually drove and rode in this truck while on duty years ago. There is a driving video game for children to play as well as toys and books for the little ones. We hope your children enjoy playing in this piece of Southern Alberta history.
