Pink Paddy's Day

Brothers and Sisters,
Pink Paddy's Day is less than a week away! Local 1549 is co-hosting the event, and I am asking for your participation. It would be nice to have a decent
turnout from Pompano. This is a great event for a great cause, so
even if you can only come out for an hour or two, do it.
We have a wide array of events for adults and kids alike:
First and foremost, there will be a 21 and over Beer Island. I'm not going to
explain to you what that is, you have to come see it.
We also have a Chili Cookoff, Truck-Pull competition,
Best-Legs-In-A-Kilt competition, for the kids there will be a Touch-a-Truck
display, bounce houses, face painting, and more. $20 Admission comes with food,
drink tickets, and an event t-shirt (see bottom). Kids are free.
Live Music Line-up is The School of Rock, The Bent Fender
Band, Baker Act, and Orange Sunshine.
This is a great opportunity for us to get together, to
fraternize with our brothers and sisters from around the county, and to eat,
drink, and be merry all for a great cause. This is something that the Broward
County Council of Professional Firefighters plan on doing every year. They
asked me in the beginning to help plan it and be a part of it, and now I'm
asking you to just come out and have fun.
If anyone would like to help me out the day of the event, I
would be very grateful. I will be at the park at the break of dawn to set up.
Hanging with me comes with free beer all day.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and I
look forward to seeing you all there.
Secretary, Local 1549
