STREAMLIGHT CALGARY FIREFIGHTERS ASSOCIATION INNOVATIVE PROFESSIONAL OFFICES (IPO) AVIS BULLARD LEVITT SAFETY T he Family Dinner was once again held the night before the annual ceremony at the Ottawa Sheraton. Members of the Board of Directors, dignitaries from fire service organizations across Canada, and the top sponsors of the CFFF, joined the families of the Fallen being honoured, for a night of remembrance and celebration. The Foundation would like to thank this year's honourary host, the National Defence Fire Service. We also thank Rob Chambers, Acting Assistant Deputy Minister of Defence for Infrastructure and Environment, and Marty Frank, Director General Infrastructure & Environment Engineering Services for their attendance. The Foundation also thanks our top level 2018 ceremony weekend sponsors: the Montreal Firefighters Association, Bruce Power, Christian Labour Association of Canada (representing Greater Hamilton Volunteer FF Association and Ontario Volunteer Firefighters Association), Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs, and our Silver and Bronze sponsors shown below, for their generous support. We could not operate the ceremony weekend without the financial assistance of all of our sponsors. At the dinner, presentations were made to the Foundation's top sponsors and Comtech Fire Credit Union made the cheque presentation for their annual golf tournament. Special guests of the Foundation at this year's memorial dinner were Seth Statler, the Treasurer of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation in the United States, Janet McGowan from the National Capitol Commission, and Toronto Fire Chief Matt Pegg, who raised $3,500 for the Foundation. We all had the honour of watching as President Robert Kirkpatrick received some special gifts as he attended his last memorial dinner after serving ten years as president. You'll be missed.
