Hello Brothers and Sisters,
We wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that tomorrow, September 1st, the PFFUI will be hosting the Indiana Fallen Fire Fighters Annual Remembrance. The Ceremony this year will be honoring one of our own, Brother Don Hochstetler of the Wayne Township Fire Department, who along with Brother Steven Mitchell of the Huntington Fire Department will be the first two presumptive cancer deaths to be added to the Memorial. Additionally, the names of James Knesek Sr. of the Munster Fire Department, Tom Stevens Sr. of the Bright Volunteer Fire Company and Jamie Middlebrook of the New Carlisle Fire Department will be placed on the Memorial. The ceremony will begin at 11:00am and generally lasts about 40-60 minutes.
Please forward this to your members so they can come out and pay respect to these fallen firefighters. This is a solemn and respectful ceremony appropriate for all ages.
If you have any questions you can contact the PFFUI or the Union Hall.
