Leavenworth Events Firefighters Dinner

Leavenworth Events, Firefighters Dinner

We were fortunate to host District 9 Station 3 banquet dinner. Around 50 firefighters and spouses attended the dinner. The Fire District Auxiliary also attended. The auxiliary donated funds from special events they hosted during the 2005 year. Some of the Leavenworth Events the Auxiliary hosted were: pancake breakfast, garage sale (held at station 1), snowmobile ride, and other events. The money raised goes to Fire District 9 for equipment and training.

Congratulations to Terry for Volunteer Firefight of the year! Rick West also received a special award for his hard work at cutting and clearing trees to help prevent forest fires. Rod and Kelly were on hand to present Rick West with this special award. As always the Elmo Award was present and received with great honor and dignity. This year however, the award will be shared between 2 firefighters.

Cliff and Dawn Barnhill were given an award for their many hours of work, dedication and support they have given over the years.

Newly elected officials were introduced for the 2006 – 2009 term. Thank you to George Wilson for your dedication as President these last 3 years.

The dinner was prime rib, baked potato, carrots in a sweet pepper and onion sauce, and of course, dessert. Dessert was a chocolate fountain with strawberries, Featherwinds biscotti, pretzels, and rum cake.

Thank you to all of the District 9 Firefighters and the Auxiliary for all your hard work.

Warm wishes.
