Thanks for making event go with a bang

Port McNeill Fire Chief Chris Walker extends thanks to those who supported the fireworks display.

Dear editor,

The Port McNeill Volunteer Fire Department would like to extend its thanks to those local businesses and members of the public that continuously make an effort to support the Port McNeill Community Halloween Fireworks display.

The Fire Department is 100 per cent Volunteer and tries hard to find the time collect your generous donations, whether they be in cash or materials (sand, wood, food, hot chocolate etc.) to make this show as great as we can for you in a community this size. Many of my members take time off work to collect the month leading up to the show and further take time off of work the big day to set up, fire and take down the show which is normally in excess of ten hours for that 20 minutes of excitement.

This year’s show marked the 20th anniversary of the show and seeing the number of people spread throughout the down town and congregating around the bonfire and stands enjoying a hot chocolate and/or hotdog, while watching the display shows your fire department a respect we really appreciate and continues to make this undertaking a honour and privilege for us to provide for you.

So again, on behalf of my members, their families, and our junior program please except my heartfelt thanks!

Chris Walker

Port McNeill Fire Chief
