Larson, along with other Blackhawk honorees, Brady Tiede, Myah Selland and Tucker Kingsbury, was recognized at the annual Elite Eight banquet held last Thursday at the Depot in Mitchell.

The Woonsocket Fire Department Open House that was held on a windy Saturday, May 21, was a huge success as over 200 residents from the city and community came to partake of a grilled hamburger or hot dog meal, tour the firehouse and watch a historic slideshow.
Children attendees enjoyed the inflated bouncy house and rides in the brand new fire truck. Smoke detectors, courtesy of First National Bank, were also given away, as well as local fire department koozies and Smokey Bear memorabilia.
