FIRE DEPARTMENTS INVITE TO FITCHBURG MA. 4TH OF JULY PARADE

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

All area fire departments,

Hope everyone is enjoying the good weather finally! We are again planning the City of Fitchburg’s 4th of July parade. It will be held on Thursday July 4th @ 1000 am. We want as many fire trucks as possible to participate in this years parade. We are looking for hand tubs, antiques, and modern apparatus.
We lead the parade so companies will not be tied up long at all. Line-up is at the Summer St. Station (Engine 1) located at 42 Summer St. Fitchburg Mass. We will line-up at 0830, we will have awards, coffee, and donuts. We are also extending the invitation to all of the Southwest NH Mutual aid cities and towns, the more the merrier. We did have trucks from Rindge, New Ipswich, Greenville and Mason last year! If there are any questions please contact me at pjr35c6@yahoo.com.
Thanks again and please pass this on to anyone that has a fire truck or any city or town interested we want a great turnout.
