Smokey Joe's Story

  About 20 years ago, when the Fire & Water Expo coordinators were designing promotional materials for the annual event, they decided that an old clip art of a crusty mustachioed firefighter, shown here, would be fun to incorporate.  They named him Smokey Joe and he has been central to the Expo theme every year since. 

  Each year, Smokey Joe changes, but just slightly, to reflect the theme and it's been a fun challenge to re-work him each time.  In the early years, he was joined by Water Drop Dude, who returned this year after being away for a while.  We hope you enjoy seeing Smokey Joe as he has appeared over the years in the gallery that follows.  Come back to see if we add more as we comb through old files!
