Memorial Highway & Roundup Parade (5/8/09)

On Friday May 8, CDF Firefighters hosted the dedication ceremony at the Pines Campground to dedicate a portion of Highway 120 from the Tuolumne County Line to Rim of the World. This dedication was part of Chris Southwick’s senior project for high school. Chris is the son of CAL FIRE Fire Captain Walt Southwick.

The next day, Columbia Helitack Crew 2009 carried one of the signs in the Mother Lode Round-Up Parade along with a few friends. Special thanks to the Stanislaus National Forest, Groveland Ranger District, Stanislaus Hot Shots, and Bob Shindelar from the front office for providing the USFS Honor Guard and CDF Firefighters Local 2881 for providing the CDF Firefighters Pipes and Drums Band and Honor Guard.

I received a telephone call last night that the section representing CAL FIRE, CDF Firefighters L2881, USFS, and TCFD and Eva Schicke was selected by the parade committee to receive the top award for all parade entries. There were 160 total entries. I’ve been asked to go down today and receive it on behalf of the section at the Rodeo along with Bob Shindelar and Robert Anzar from Tuolumne County Fire Department.

We had a great time and the Vallecito Cook crew (decimated by Code 5’s) came through and served a great lunch BBQ for about 80 people at Rotary Park afterwards. Thanks to Brad Stratton, Mark Seim, Lavelle West, Denis Laughon, Mike and Teresa Carnesseca again.

What a perfect way to kick off the season. Thanks to all for a great weekend. Have a safe summer. “B4415”
