The Lions Club of Sudbury recognized the Estaire Wanup Volunteer Fire Department for their bravery and dedication to assisting and serving your community and the people who live there.
President Lion Gerry Corby and member Lion Sandra Del-Pivo Sauve attended the fire department to present them with a $1,000 cheque from the club.
One of the members of the Lions Club of Sudbury has a cottage off one of the roads covered by the Estaire Wanup Volunteer Fire Department. They were able to see first hand, the efforts of the small fire department, to save the homes in that area as well as assisting the MNR battle hundreds of acres of bush fires that flared up a couple of weeks prior. While the MNR fought from the air, the fire department had their pumps at the ready for use at ground level.
When the topic of new business came up, another member brought forward that a donation should be made to the Estaire Wanup volunteer fire service. This is a volunteer service. As part of our community service, it was imperative to ensure those who stand for us are able to going forward.
What the service has done in the past, is currently doing and will do in the future deserves to be recognized. We commend you for your bravery and dedication to assisting and serving your community and the people who live there.
