Last weekend our department took part in the Fallen Firefighter’s Memorial March. That evening, we celebrated firefighters at the Member Recognition Party. SCFPSA group members put great effort into honouring past and current members at these events. Big Thanks to Stephanie Nixon for orchestrating the Member’s Recognition Party! It was a big job and she made it look like a breeze. Thank you to Laura Mercier for tending bar (and for making the job so much fun), and Roisin Thomas for helping with set up and clean up.
Thank you to our Honour Guard for inviting SCFPSA to lay down a wreath and to Local 2461 Vice President Elliott Davis ordering the wreath and banner (and thanks again, Stephanie, for laying it during the ceremony!). Thank you to all the members of this group who participated in laying a rose. Thanks to the Union Executive for hosting the Recognition event, and to Pipes and Drums for the beautiful job they did in performing during the ceremony and the party. Courtney Pytyck supplied free cupcakes for the party through her home business The Sweet Artisan, and Sabine Shabbits took photos at the event, while SCES Communications lead Jennifer Thames and SCFP Spouse Roisin contributed those below. Thank you to those being recognized for their years of services, those who represented our community with such pride while marching, and to all who attended the events. I hope I didn’t miss anyone!
