Why We Celebrate...
One of the reasons we celebrate Char Day is to remember how important coal production was to Iowa's growth.
Another reason we celebrate Char Day is so we all can learn about basic coal and fire safety.
We also celebrate Char Day to have time to remember those who spent their lives in the mines.
