The community’s firefighters have gathered to celebrate their efforts, and there was no shortage of service awards being handed out to the local volunteers.

The annual Firefighter’s Ball was held on Feb. 2 at the Elks Hall. The event includes a catered meal, speeches, door prizes, raffles and entertainment, but the entertainment this year was different from other years. The attendees got to try their luck at black jack.

Dan Deiana, who along with his wife volunteered to organize the event, was the master of ceremonies for the night. He said as a former volunteer firefighter, he honours the volunteers and the bond shared by all firefighters.
