I attended the Canby Fire District’s board meeting for the first time last night. The opening ceremony was one to recognize the milestones of 3 firefighters: the swearing in of Cody Miller, the new hiring of Andrew Aamodt, and the 15 year pinning of Dennis Bigham.
It is clear that the firefighters are a very close knit group who like to joke around yet respect each other very much. It is neat to behold this kind of authentic camaraderie. I am sure glad I went.
I also learned that they will put a local option levy on the ballot in November to continue their funding. I wish them all the best in this endeavor. The community appreciates their exceptional level of professionalism and service and I hope we will vote accordingly.
