The Ripon Area Fire District had a big party Monday night as it celebrated its own.

Three firefighters received promotions, two retired and six joined as rookies.

After a ceremony, the firefighters enjoyed cake and ice cream.

Middle right, standing with their retirement cake are retirees Dan Luskey, left, and Darwin Prellwitz.
