There will be a memorial event to recognize the sacrifice made twenty years ago by the 14 young firefighters from the Prineville Hotshots, the Missoula Smokejumpers, and the McCall Smokejumpers. The events are being hosted by The South Canyon Fire Commemorative Committee, the City of Glenwood Springs, and firefighters and fire departments from a wide area. We are hosting approximately 170 plus family members. The event culminates on Sunday, July 6, 2014, the twentieth anniversary of the loss of these most brave and dedicated souls.
The schedule for Sunday begins with a Press conference at Glenwood Middle School at 2:30 p.m.
4:30 p.m. Procession of Fire Engines from the Mall to Two Rivers Park
5:00 p.m. Commemorative event to honor the fallen firefighters and their families begins at Two Rivers Park
This will be a Fourth of July of a somber reaffirmation as a community to the families of the fallen, and to all firefighters everywhere that WE SHALL NEVER FORGET!
The community is urged to attend the Memorial at Two Rivers Park on Sunday, July 6.
