Local 5031 had numerous guests to honor at our last union meeting:
- Our 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament was held in July of this year where we were able to raise $20,000 for Firefighters for Healing.
Jake LaFerriere, president and founder of this great organization was on hand to receive our donation. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with Firefighters For Healing and we look forward to partnering with them for years to come!
-Retired firefighter Luke Price was presented with a shadowbox for his 11 years of service to the community. All members of our local who serve 5 years or more are presented with a shadowbox upon retirement. Firefighter Price served as paid on call member and was an original member of our full time on A shift crew. Enjoy your retirement Luke!
- Our Fire Ops 101 participants were presented with plaques after participating in our event in August of this year. We would like to thank Rich, Anthony, Karen, George, Mike, Hassanen, and Kathy for all of there support and effort. Unfortunately the photos that were taken did not turn out.
- Lastly, Chief Ken Prillaman (Ret.) was presented with a ceremonial axe as a thank you from all the members of our local. Among the list of achievements during his time here, Chief Prillaman was instrumental in pushing for the transition to full-time career firefighters in 2015. Although a simple thank you will never be enough, enjoy your retirement Chief and Thank You!
