Sidney Town Councillor Kenny Podmore is asking the public to show their gratitude for local firefighters this weekend during anniversary celebrations.
In honour of the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department’s 100th Anniversary, a parade will take place this Saturday, Aug. at 11 a.m. on Beacon Avenue.
“This is a very special event for our fire department and an anniversary which all Sidney residents can be proud of. One hundred years is a big deal!
“I would encourage people to come out for the parade to show our fire department how much we appreciate what they do for us,” said Podmore, adding he would like to see parade attendees bring a sign they can hold.
“It can be something simple – just a “thank you” on a regular piece of paper, or people can get more creative and make something bigger,” he said.
Podmore also noted that the Town of Sidney has already posted pre-designed sign on their website (www.sidney.ca) and on the Sidney Fire Department’s 100th anniversary website (www.sidneyfire100year.com) that can be downloaded and printed.
