JUNEAU - The City Museum begins its Saturday morning Coffee & Collections presentation series Oct. 18 at 10:30 a.m. To kick off the season Sandy Harbanuk and members of the Juneau Volunteer Firefighters Association will present "Running Toward the Fires: A City and Its Firefighters, 1885 - 1987," the story of Juneau's "Smokeaters," and the historic fires, catastrophes and notable events during the first century of the Juneau Volunteer Fire Department.
This presentation is based on a recent publication by the JVFA that was sponsored in part by a Juneau History Grant from the Museum.
Copies of the publication will be available for purchase during the presentation. Coffee for the program will be provided by Heritage Coffee Company.
