Local photog Lincoln Smith took his camera along for a tour of the show, hight and low. Smith, a Warwick resident, whose dad, also Lincoln, a pastor at Lakewood Baptist for 23 years before his retirement in 1988, was a WFD chaplain. Regular readers of Warwick Post may also recall Smith’s numerous photographic submissions of scenes in Warwick.
“I was like a kid in a candy store with all the fire trucks. I even got to go up in a tower ladder. What a view from up there. Took a lot of pictures. Even got a picture of the WFD canine officer and his dog. Weather was great and I had a fun time for a couple of hours,” Smith said.
