Back toHomeFeature Article - October 9, 2008 South Frontenac Firefighters2009 calendar now availableBy Julie Druker
Rick Chesebrough, Fire Chief of South Frontenac Fire and Rescue, in conjuction with Kingston Fire decided it was high time to jump on board with the Alberta-based company “The Fire Within” and put out a South Frontenac version of a volunteer fire fighters’ calendar for the upcoming year.
Chesebrough was contacted by Chad Saritison, chair of the “The Fire Within”, and the two made all of the necessary arrangements to complete the project.
Funds generated from sales of the calendar will help fund all volunteer fire fighter departments across the country and a portion of the sales will also go directly to the South Frontenac Fire Departments.
The calendar was a joint venture between Kingston and South Frontenac Departments and both area stations are included in the calendar.
Six of the twelve calendar months show SF volunteer firefighters donning their protective gear in a variety of settings in the districts of South Frontenac.
South Frontenac volunteer fire fighters who wished to be included in the calendar put their names in a hat and names were drawn at each station.
The calendars cost $20 and can be purchased at any of the South Frontenac Fire Departments in time for Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 5 – 12, when many of the stations will be open to the public.
The calendars can also be purchased at various Sydenham businesses including the Sydenham Post Office, Trousdale’s Home Hardware, Sydenham One Stop, The Royal Bank (Sydenham branch), Eclipse Hair Salon, Trousdale’s General Store and Foodland, The Hillside Cafand Memory Lane Flowers
It’s a great chance to purchase a 2009 calendar for your home or as a gift for someone else and to support our local fire fighters and all volunteer fire fighters across the country.
