We are pleased to announce that the 2013 Firefighter’s Fair was a huge success!  We had beautiful weather on Friday night and all day Saturday.  We can not thank the community members enough for your support. 

Our apologies to the community for starting our fireworks display later than normal.  Friday, June 21 just happened to be the longest day of summer which meant it did not get completely dark until after 10pm.  Thank-you to everyone for your patience.

Please see below for a list of prize winners:

Congratulations to Terra Lynch who was the winner of the cowboy hat that was signed by some kind folks from the TV show Big Brother Canada.  Thank-you to Bits’n’Bridles for donating the hat to be signed.

Congratulations also goes to Nancy Bowman who was the winner of the utility shed and the mystery prize.  The shed and mystery prize were donated by Built By Bill.

Thank-you to Eddy’s variety for donating all canteen supplies.

Champion Dunk Tanker: Liam Moore ($100 prize donated by Joey Lowther’s Drywalling)
