Celebration & Remembrance

A couple of posts back I mentioned that I had the opportunity to share in a very touching moment with the Morden Fire Dept in giving salute to a fallen comrade? Well, here are the pics I promised to post. Again, they are not the best as we had to quickly snap them between traffic and could not get up as close as we wanted but here they are anyway. Their fallen comrade was a fire cheif from a community just down the road who passed away in a motorcycle accident in Alberta. I thought this was a really nice way to honor him and his family. It was pretty cool! He was escorted by fire trucks and saluted by depts all the way from Winnipeg airport to home. Below are a couple pictures of the salute. The first one is just the guys saluting and the 2nd one is of the guys and our fire truck leading a bus with his family on it home.

CELEBRATION! Below are a few photos of the FD in the Morden C & A parade this year! The boot drive the firefighters did for Muscular Dystrophy was a success. They raised just over $10,000! Way to go boys!
