    Every September, professional firefighters/golfers, (including retirees) from all around the country and Canada get together in a different city to trade hats, shirts, and war stories and play some golf! It is a 3-day tournament for golfers of all abilities. You can enter as a four-man team, two-man team, or individuals. (Individuals will be flighted). The package includes 3-days of golf, three breakfasts, three lunches, and three sit down dinners, (including a final night awards banquet), nightly hospitality rooms, lots of prizes and awards, and tons of fun! This year‘s package is $374 plus lodging per player. $134 per/night. (Two Bedroom Villas- 4 people = $34 per person per night) Spouses are also welcome at a non-golfer rate. Last September we were in Washington D.C. This September our tournament will be at the Legends Golf Resort in Myrtle Beach, Sep. 23-25, 2019.

    In a moment's notice within the blink of an eye Stephanie Roper unexpectedly passed away. Stephanie Roper is the wife of our MDFR brother Jeffery Roper who works on R 78 C Shift. I was fortunate enough to have met Stephanie, and let me just say she was a very special person, a great mother, and a dedicated and caring wife.

    Brotherhood as defined by Merriam-Webster; feelings of friendship, support, and understanding between people: a group or organization of people who have the same interests, jobs, etc. In the fire service, we know it means so much more. Brotherhood means that we are there for one another. It means we have each other’s backs.
