Sirmans, Florida

I was browsing through our family atlas yesterday (like any good American would) when I stumbled across a little town called Sirmans, Florida. The village of Sirmans, population 35 is only 40 miles away from the town where we live. Can you say mini road trip? 
We made the 40 mile trek to check it out today and found a few interesting sites.
Here's the local Baptist church, where the wonderful villagers of Sirmans go to worship.
Here's Sirmans sanitary waste collection, where the villagers of Sirmans go to drop off their waste. They're open 'til 7 pm Monday - Friday, closed Tuesday.
Here's the Sirmans volunteer fire department, where the villagers volunteer and call for help when there's a fire. 
Here's Emme, Andrew, and Clee, posing with the Sirmans volunteer fire truck.


Boy howdy, Sirmans, Florida was amazing! Can't wait to go again!

I love your report on the trip to Sirmans, Florida. Yes, we saw it on the map also and thought we ought to all move there! We could almost double the population there. Also, love Andrew's Georgia outfit. He's a big UGA fan!
