Funds and a little hell raised by firefighters n friends
Over $10,500 was raised for the B.C. Firefighters’ Burn Fund during the Cranbrook Professional Fire Fighters Local 1253’s sixth annual Fall Bash Oct. 27.
A sold-out Columbo Lodge was once again filled with all variety of costumed revellers, enjoying the famous Columbo Lodge meatballs and spaghetti, dancing, bidding on a wide array of silent auction goods and vying for some top notch prizes.
