On March 12, all of the area fire departments had a recruiting campaign at the Save-On-Foods parking lot.
Our 108 Mile Ranch Volunteer Fire Department (108MRVFD) participated and was fortunate enough to gain two new recruits. It’s great news and we welcome the new firefighters.
On March 28, the 108MRVFD held its annual Homeowners Fire Smart Manual handout day at the 108 Supermarket. The manual gave residents information on how to protect their property.
Firefighters got an opportunity to display their new emergency equipment trailer. The trailer is equipped with 12 sprinklers, which are designed to be used in the event of a forest fire.
The trailer will allow firefighters to place the sprinklers in areas such as roof tops and other spots as required.
One of the Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship (CCLF) Bible Study groups under the expert guidance of Jay Dickinson provided the Psalm 23 Society at 59 Mile with a supper for all the 11 residents, as well as the administrators Marvin and Shelley Declare.
The total for the gathering was 29 people and the fantastic food was prepared under the guidance of Marie Allison and co-ordinated by Jessica Allison, with the remainder of the group providing varied dishes that made for a great meal.
