Firefighter's Weekend Has Started
Annual Firefighter's Weekend that is held in Downtown St. Louis. It is a wonderful function that celebrates the brotherhood of Firefighting with proceeds going to the Backstopper's and and area Burn Center. Backstopper's is an organization that helps the widows and children of fallen Fire, Police and EMT's in the the area. Each year there is a Candle Light Visual on Thursday, Firefighter's Ball on Friday and Great Fire Engine Rally on Saturday. This year, on Sunday, there will be a church service beginning at the exact time the first tower fell in New York. The weekend is always fun, but also tearful as men and women remember co-works, friends and family. We will be participating in the weekend activities and I'm taking a camera this year. I'll share some photos on Monday. Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend. As always, Happy Quilting!
