SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) — The Speedway Lions Club has embarked on a project to repaint the town’s fire hydrants in a nod to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
On Facebook, the club is asking for contributions of $50, the cost of converting each fire hydrant into a black-and-white, checkered pattern that mimics the flag that signifies a race winner.
Any idea how many fire hydrants are in the town of 12,224? The Lions Club says it’s nearly 500, so the goal is to raise $25,000.
People and organizations can donate through the Venmo app at @Speedway-LionsOR, or send checks to this address: Speedway Lions Club; Fire Hydrant Project; 5503 W. 16th St.; Speedway, IN 46224.
