I know I am extremely late in posting this, BUT I heard it’s snowing out at Pigeon Lake today, so perhaps it’s still somewhat seasonal??
2014 updates/posts will be much more timely….promise!
Our Truck and The South Pigeon Lake Fire Department volunteers were Given A place of honour at the 2013 Santa Claus Parade
Presented by the Wetaskiwin Firefighters
The 2013 Wetaskiwin Fire Department Santa Claus Parade was again a huge success, full of community spirit.
The South Pigeon Lake Fire Department volunteers were honoured to host parade marshal Dot Brekke, and lead the parade with our 1947 La France Fire Truck #50 “The Fald Pumper”.
19 years ago Dot Brekke, along with a loyal group of community members spearheaded the need for an annual kickoff to the holiday season, which led to the Gingerbread and Glitter annual holiday season events, and the Santa Clause parade has become an important part of that tradition.
Thank you to the Wetaskiwin Firefighters Social Club for organizing the parade, and to Warren Stark and the rest of the SPLFD volunteers for all their effort decorating the truck. We are looking forward to next year!
