Smokey Knows!

 Smokey knows

 

I had the privilege of spending some time down in Calaveras County this weekend. During a break in the volunteer work, I got a chance to walk around the grounds at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds. It looks like part of the grounds is being used by Smokey-the-Bear; and the message about “Only you can prevent Forest Fires”.

Smokey Knows!

Way, way back the original voice for Smokey was a local radio guy.  When I heard the Smokey ads I knew it was him.
