In the upstairs lounge and meeting room, a handsomely mounted deerhead dominates one wall. I assumed one of the firemen had shot it, but the story is that the fire department's ambulance hit it on their way to an ambulance call. The head was mounted and the meat distributed among the firemen. Humor runs high at the Mill Creek station, and the ambulance crew is fond of pulling practical jokes. With serious expressions, the ambulance crew transported a nurse they all know through their ambulance work to the State Hospital at Farnhurst. She tried to convince them that they were mistaken, but they carted her off and only let her in on the joke when she was really getting worried. A "Christmas Truck" was part of one year's celebration when Santa was taken around on a stretcher.
