St. Patrick's Day Parade comming soon!

St. Patty's day is just around the corner and Station 9 is already working on a shirt for the parade. Above is the logo we hope to use along with a few slogans... "Fir Na Tine" which translates to "men of fire" and "Braithreachas Thar Gach Ni" translating to "Brotherhood above all else". Now, so far, this is just C-shift's thoughts. All 3 shift will need to be consulted before the final version is sent to print but I think we have the makings of a pretty good shirt. We will be using Captain Mutters printing company to produce the shirts. Scott and Missy do a great job at an affordable price. Check out their site at Roanoke's parade is Saturday March the 14th. Capt. Wines will be driving the IAFF L-1132's 1938 fire engine which will hopefully be full of our firefighters children again this year. Station 9 is putting the challenge out this year to all the other stations to develop their own shirt and participate in the parade. It has even been mentioned that our Local (1132) will have an open house at the Union Hall after the parade with free food and beverages for the adults and children (this idea is just in the planning stage so please contact a Union official with advise / input / comments etc). If your station designs a shirt, send us the pic and we'll get it up on the site. Good luck and hope to see you all out on the parade route.
