Dear Editor,
Thanksgiving is the time of year when everyone gives thanks for all that is special in their lives…all that they are grateful for. We, the Elora Fire Fighter’s Association would like to express our thanks and gratitude to our community. What a wonderful community we live in. As we reflect on our events of this year, we feel great pride for this community that we all call home.
Our annual Pancake Breakfast, held on July 1st, was an incredible success again this year. Thanks to all of you who came out and stood in the line of red and white in support of us and our chosen charity, the Guelph-Wellington Children’s Wish Foundation which was the recipient of the proceeds from this year’s breakfast. Our breakfast was a success with the help of John Markvart, Fran Weima and Marlene McDonald. Thank you for your generous help with the preparation of our breakfast. It was greatly appreciated.
In August we held our annual Boot Drive, raising more than $8000 for Muscular Dystrophy. It too was a success thanks to all of you in this great community. We are sure that tourists also had a hand in the success of our boot drive, but it is the greatness of this community that draws the tourists here!
And so, as this season of Thanksgiving is upon us, we say thanks to all of you for your continued support.
