“In this job, we take an oath, and a lot of times the family is sacrificing, so it’s important for the kids to come out, the significant others, wives and spouses, to come out here and be a part of this, too,” said Chief Karl Durr.

The bean was hoisted over the new entrance to the building on Highland Avenue.
