News from District 3 – July 2015

Our last board meeting in June, provided us the question we were all asking: Where is the 2016 convention being held? The answer: Lake of the Ozarks by the Lake Area Emergency Services Association, Inc. I’m sure we will be having more information in the FFAM newsletter and on the website. From my records, this is only the second time the same location has hosted the convention one after another. So, what does that tell us?

I want to inform all of you that Steve Gentry, from Little Dixie Fire Protection District out of Mexico, has been approved as District 3’s assistant. He and Rob Erdel will make us the three ______ from District 3.

We have already been to the state fair firehouse in June for a work weekend and have another one in July. The State Fair is in Sedalia from August 6-16 and it is always a good time to stop by and visit with those working at the fair. We can probably promise rain and hot weather. There is always good food from breakfast to supper and snacks in between.

As a member of the Missouri Fire Service Funeral Assistance Team, I want to thank the auxiliary for their donations to the team. We carry a lot of items in our trailers and usually need replacements on things. Your contributions are greatly appreciated.

Director of District 3
