Long Serving Fire Chief Retires after 25 years of service
Vegreville, Alberta, June 30, 2016 – "Better to Best", for twenty five (25) years, Vegreville Emergency Services has been a part of Jerrold Lemko’s life and this is the motto he created and lived by for Vegreville’s fire service. On June 30, 2016, that will all change as Chief Lemko hangs up his hat to spend more time with his wife of 40 years, Anita and his two (2) sons, and three (3) grandchildren.
Boot Drive for Muscular Dystrophy
On Saturday, June 4, 2016, the members of the Vegreville Fire Department gathered for their annual boot drive for MD (Muscular Dystrophy). The boot drive took place at the Tim Horton’s/Boston Pizza/Canadian Tire & Fas Gas intersection from 10-2.
Muscular Dystrophy is the national fundraiser for fire departments across Canada and fire departments raise over $3,000,000.00 annually for MD through a variety of events.
The Vegreville Fire department raised a total of $6300 for Muscular Dystrophy on Saturday. A thank you the community and all those that supported us in our fight against Muscular Dystrophy. A special thank you to Fas Gas, Tim Horton’s, Canadian Tire & Boston Pizza for allowing us to use your business space on Saturday and to Boston Pizza for providing the firefighters lunch and Tim Horton’s for providing us coffee.
