Carney Street is located across from Houston Elementary School.  You must turn down Carney Street to see the fire station.  Antenna setup starts at 8 am on Friday, June 26th.  Please note this is a time change; a suggestion was made that this time be moved earlier due to the current heat wave we are experiencing.  Field Day starts at 2 pm on Saturday, June 27th and runs for 24 hours, ending at 2 pm, Sunday, June 28th.  We can't wait to see everybody again this year at this awesome event.
