Celebrating Brian Traxler’s Birthday. Brian Traxler turned 58 on July 9 and was honored with a parade organized by his large extended Arthur family and friends to show just how much he is loved. Close to 60 fire trucks, cars, trucks, semi’s, golf carts, and tractors left the high school parking lot and proceeded down Vine to Hickory where Brian along with his family were waiting on the east side of Oye’s Hardware to receive the many Happy Birthday sentiments and even a few presents as they were gently tossed to him. He was treated earlier in the day to lunch and a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. Pictured top left is Brian and his mother Carolyn Traxler just prior to the parade arriving and Matt Bernius giving Brian a big hug.
