On the eve of what would have been our 114th annual firemen's fair, it is important to take a minute to recognize the history of our storied organization. What normally would have been a busy day/night finalizing details before opening our grounds to all the new and old faces of our community, we instead find ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic. The normal carnival lights, and familiar sounds have been replaced with a stark darkness behind our headquarters building on Boulevard Ave. I know many people will be missing the yearly labor day tradition, but it was with the utmost consideration we arrived at the decision to cancel this years festivities. Our family at the GFD just wants to extend the thanks and appreciation we have received from the public for their support throughout these trying times.

We want to wish everyone a safe and happy end to this summer season, and will without a doubt be back bigger and better next year. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon...
