Firefighter Brad Dicks has reached out to SCFPSA for some brainstorming. He’s hard at work trying to raise money to pay for Michelle Anderson and her girls to attend an upcoming FireFit event in which Darren will be honoured. He’s asked if any of our members have any fundraising ideas and would really appreciate the help. He’s planning a bottle drive but would like to hear more ideas.
We’ll be discussing several fundraising ideas at the upcoming Quarterly Meeting on January 20, 4pm, at Station Six, along with other agenda points.
One proposal to raise funds comes from SCFP Spouse Alison, who proposes the creation and sale of a Firehall Cookbook. In the Private Facebook Group, Alison writes:
Good morning all! A fundraising idea for the Anderson family came to me last night. I had run it by Katie and she in turn ran it by Brad and they both seem quite excited about it. The thought is, why don’t we try to attempt to put together a firehall cookbook (using Member’s recipes)?! Katie and I skimmed the surface of how this may work / roll out this morning. Something to chew on and talk about. Timelines will be tight so if this is something people are keen on, thoughts, comments and contributions will be greatly appreciated!
There’s been a lot of positive feedback online, but more ideas and brainstorming is needed. We have volunteers offering help with the editing, photography, design, and nutritional content of this book – if you can help in any way, from marketing to recipe collection to recipe submission – please let us know. We would love to further discuss this at this Sunday’s Meeting!
Other items on the agenda of January’s meeting include planning the Spring BBQ, a short introduction to guest speakers Colette and Gary of Front Line Resiliency Project, and more.
Childcare in the adjacent room will be available for those who confirm their intent to use it.
