outside agency apparatus will continue past the cemetery and return to
service following the procession. All agencies wishing to participate in the

The Afton Ice Rink by 1015 on April 27th, 2020.

A celebration of life ceremony will be arranged in coming months that will
afford all firefighters an opportunity to honor Engineer Shormas. Details
