2017 NC State Fair – Help Needed

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Foundation is looking for help to staff their booth at the 150th NC State Fair in October. This is a huge exposure event for the NCFFF and with lots of volunteer assistance, it is a great opportunity to share the mission of the Foundation, educate the public about Line Of Duty Deaths, and inform firefighters of the resources available to departments suffering a LODD. It is also the largest fundraiser of the year for the Foundation, which in turn directly helps support the families of North Carolina’s Fallen Heros!

The NCFFF is using Signup.com to coordinate staffing. If you can give just a few hours helping at the booth, it would really make a difference. The dates are from October 12 – 22, 2017. Follow this link to sign up for your spot:

Bells Across America

Flyer 2016

Bells Will Ring at John Knox Presbyterian Church on October 9, 2016 for the 6th Annual Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters
National remembrance honors those who died in the line of duty

John Knox Presbyterian Church cordially invites your department and family members to participate with us during our regular worship service on October 9, 2016 at 10:30 am as we have a time of remembrance for those firefighters lost in North Carolina and across the country. If your department has had an LODD and would like for us to honor and remember them please email his or her name and we will include them in the service.

For the fifth year, the entire country is invited to come together as one community to honor the memory of those firefighters who died in the line of duty and reassure their loved ones that their firefighter will not be forgotten by participating in the Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters.

John Knox Presbyterian Church (for the fourth year) will join the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and other organizations from coast to coast in this poignant tribute as part of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend held in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Our moment of remembrance will occur on October 9, 2016, at 10:30 AM, 610 Charles Rd, Shelby, NC.

“The ringing of bells has a powerful meaning to firefighters. Not only do bells signal the beginning or end of a call, they also were used to notify department members that one of their own had died while serving the community,” explained Chief Ronald Siarnicki, executive director of the NFFF. “At the beginning of the Memorial Service on Sunday, October 4th, the bells at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Chapel in Emmitsburg will ring to honor the memories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in 2015.

Hundreds of fire departments, places of worship and other groups participated in Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters over the past five years. Please join us as we remember and honor our firefighters on October 9, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.

We at John Knox appreciate your service to the community and look forward to your participation.

Pastor Deborah Lesenger
