ROSCOMMON- The 44th annual Fireman’s Memorial Festival took place in mid-September. The event kicked off Family Night with free hot dogs, interactive activities for the kids, and demonstrations. The weekend continued with vendors, bouncy houses, music, raffle drawings, competitions, the annual parade, and of course, the infamous Lions chicken dinner. The occasion concluded with the pancake breakfast on Sunday hosted by the Higgins Lake Township Fire Department.
