We held our Annual Alert Family Picnic and BBQ with the Alert Fire Co. No. 1 of St. Clair, PA as our special guests. This is a special day where our officers of the company say thank you to our members and their families for the personal sacrifices that are made to make our company a great team and the Pride of the West Ward!
Over the past few months, a few of our senior members were able to strike-up a conversation with a few of the senior members of the Alerts in St. Clair, discussing that it had been several years since we last got together! Our company had been getting together, off and on with our sister company over the years since 1983! For many of our visitors from St. Clair, Schuylkill County, this was their first visit to Downingtown and they had never seen our equipment or firehouse. So, this was a great opportunity for us to visit and catch-up with each other, in addition to starting some new long-lasting friendships. Everybody had a great time and had plenty of food to eat.
The Alert Corporate and Active Force Officers would like to thank all of our members for helpingto make this wonderful day a great success. And, a special thank you to the staff of Acquilante Foods for another great catered Pig Roast!
