A bicentennial celebration and open house greeted village residents Saturday at the Wellington fire station on Kelly Street. Attractions included a tour of the station, a car crash extraction demonstration by firefighters and EMTs, a kids’ obstacle course, and plenty of root beer floats as temperatures approached 100 degrees.
