Coronach Firemen's Awards Night
On Saturday, April 23, in the Kinsmen Hall, firemen from the last 21 years were honoured at the awards night. A history of the fire protection in the Coronach area was told by Mr. Don Beattie.
In 1928, the first fire equipment arrived in Coronach and by fall the building was completed to house the equipment. This building was on C.P.R. property and , in 1945, the firehall was moved to the site which is now known to all as the Co-op.
In 1949, a lot was purchased to build a new fire hall and town office, and, in 1950 new equipment arrived.
In September of 1979, the latest fire hall was completed. Mr. John Dosch and Mr. Marvin Day were given a special gift for serving on the fire brigade 20 and 21 years each.
Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Harold Siggelkow, assisted by Claude Rousseau, and Don Kirby presented the awards to all firemen present.
The evening came to a close with coffee and doughnuts and a dance with the music supplied by The Melody Five from Rockglen.
