Shovels hit the dirt in Topton Wednesday.
They had a special groundbreaking for the new ambulance facility in the 100 block of Home Avenue.
The Topton American Legion Community Ambulance Service has been inside a two-car garage for years.
Land for the new facility was donated by the Lutheran Home of Topton.
For some it's a dream that has finally become a reality.
"I have been an EMT since the late 70s, a firefighter also here in the community. I must be honest this is a project I never though that would come to be," said David Reppert of the Topton Community Ambulance.
The ambulance company has been a fixture in Topton since the 1950s.
