Heritage Day- Thank You Volunteers and Sponsors
Another successful Heritage Day and Concert Under the Stars is under our belts. It would not have been possible without the hard work of our wonderful volunteers and the support of our sponsors, who are too numerous to list here.
Although the weather hampered our plans and kept away some of the antique engines, there were many highlights over the course of the two day event.
A break in the rain allowed us to hold the concert and BBQ outside! We had a large crowd who danced the night away. We had our largest crowd ever for the parade! The wet down of J.W. Ford Hose’s new engine was truly a unique one of a kind event! Another highlight was that the late Catherine Button, great granddaughter of Lysander Button, was able to attend and wish the Button engine crews luck. Her support garnered a victory for the crew of the TW Lane, a Button engine from Mystic, Ct. as she looked on.
We will be developing a new theme for next year’s Heritage Day and look forward to all of your support and involvement.
