Thanks for celebrating with us

As a co-chair to the Clallam Fire District 3 Centennial celebration held on Aug. 9, I would like to share our appreciation to the community for its support in making this special event a huge success.

As a co-chair to the Clallam Fire District 3 Centennial celebration held on Aug. 9, I would like to share our appreciation to the community for its support in making this special event a huge success.

Both co-chair Jeff Albers and I are still amazed at the overwhelming support of such a large group of volunteers and contributors who stepped forward to help us put this event on.

Without a large group of sponsors, the event would not have become a reality. It is through their generous donations that we were able to fund this weekend without the use of district funds. Key corporate sponsors to help us put this on were: the City of Sequim, 7 Cedars Casino, Sound Community Bank, First Federal, Olympic Ambulance, The Blackball Ferry Lines, US Fire and America’s Elite. In addition, IAFF Local 2933, the firefighters’ union, also made a substantial donation as well as provided needed assistance.

Special recognition should go to Guy Horton, our emcee, for doing a masterful job of organizing the Sidney B.C. (Canadian) and Snohomish District 7 (American) Honor Guards as well as the Snohomish 7 Pipes and Drums in the opening ceremony.

Both Jeff and I also would like to thank all our District 3 volunteer staff for contributing hundreds of hours of their time to this great cause.
