Appreciation Night – Pympton Sportsman’s Club (Photo’s by Firefighter Steve Falconer) - February 28, 2015

When three well thought of members of the department hang up their helmets for the last time, a party seems quite appropriate. Words of praise, thoughtful gifts, a lot of ribbing and a great meal among friends made for a very special night.  Wide grins, firm handshakes from well wishers and yes, a tear or two was shed.  When you think of the 96 total years of service to the community by these three, just try and imagine for a few moments the heat and cold they have felt, screams and cry’s they have heard, horrors they have seen, and the precious moments they spent apart from their own family while performing their duties. All this is balanced by gratitude and smiles displayed from people they have helped and the satisfaction of knowing they did their job well as part of a team that runs on PRIDE.  Thank you Carl, Mark and Billy.
