The Wellington Dufferin Mutual Aid Association held its annual banquet here and the Wellington Dufferin Fire Prevention Officers Association again had its annual Fire Prevention Safety Poster competition.
The competition runs from Kindergarten to grade 8 in all schools. The criteria is a fire prevention message on how to prevent fires from occurring in the first place.
The entries are judged locally by the individual fire departments and then the winners from each grade are then moved on to the county competition.
There were many beautiful posters again this year and unfortunately there can be only one chosen per grade. All of the winners and their family were invited to the banquet where their posters were displayed for all of the fire departments in both counties to view.
The winners each received a plaque honouring their achievement and a performance from Daring Derek the magician.
