On October 9th the Hamilton Professional Fire Fighters Association held its 77th Annual Pensioners Banquet. Over 200 retired, active fire fighters and guests came out to hounour our new Retirees and those who have blazed the path before them. Guests included the Honourary Ted McMeekin, MPP Monique Taylor and Councillor Jason Farr.
Along with honouring our Retirees, Brother Ed Stanisz recieved the Walter Baumann Award for his years of dedication and distinguished service to Fire Fighters at the Local and Provincial level.
Special tribute was also given to Brother Fred Engelbrecht (pictured), our oldest surviving Retiree and WWII Veteran.
Congratulations to all of our new Retirees and we hope to see all of you again next year.
Fraternally and with Respect, Executive Committee.
