The ribbon cutting will take place at 9:30 a.m. The Cleveland Spring Expo will follow from 10 a.m.- 8 p.m. This all day event will feature vendors from across the state. The vendors and crafters will set-up inside and outside of the new fire station. Visitors will be able to tour the fire station all day.

Another part of the celebration will be entertainment throughout the day. There will be raffle prizes drawn hourly during the day.
The Cleveland Elementary students welcomed the new fire station to town on April 15. Each class from Cleveland Elementary toured the new facility. After the tours the students gathered for a group photo in front of the new fire station along with Jasper the antique fire truck from fire fighting days of the past.
The students prepared a sign of thanks for the contractor and engineer for the project. R&O Construction was the contractor for the fire station.
