ODESSA FIRE DEPARTMENT REUNION
37th Annual Odessa Fire Department Reunion, SEPTEMBER 16TH and 17TH 2016
DUE TO SCHEDULING PROBLEMS WE HAD TO MOVE THE DATE UP TWO WEEKS!!!
All retired, current and former members (including their families) of the Odessa Fire Department and Emergency Communications are invited to attend the 37th Annual Odessa Fire Department Reunion. In keeping with tradition, the first day of the reunion will be on Friday September 16th, 2016 and the second day on Saturday September 17th, 2016. Below is the itinerary for the reunion.
Friday September 16th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm:
We will meet at Sherwood Park Community Center, located just East of Dixie on 49th Street. Fried fish, french fries, chicken strips,potato salad, beans, bread and drinks will be provided. It would be great if those attending could bring their favorite side dish or dessert.
Saturday September 17th from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm:
We will meet at the Sherwood Park Community Center again. Hopefully this will give those that can't make it on Friday, an opportunity to visit. Lunch will be served at 12:00 and will include brisket, german sausage, beans, bread and drinks. Again, it would be great if those attending could bring their favorite side dish or dessert. A group picture will be taken at 11:30. Again this year, we would like for those of you with ice cream makers to bring your favorite recipe and ice cream freezer for the “Ice Cream Freeze Off.” We will have plenty of ice on hand, and the winning recipe will have bragging rights for the next year. After lunch, at 1:00 pm, there will be a drawing of gifts. The tradition of bringing a gift for the drawing was started many years ago, and has always been the highlight of the Saturday get-together, not to mention a lot of fun as well. Gifts don't have to be expensive and they can be new or old. In the past it's been anything from a homemade knickknack or canned preserve to a store-bought coffee cup or birdhouse. It's a great time and the more gifts that are brought, the greater chance of everyone getting drawn for one. The afternoon will include more time of fellowship and an opportunity to put a face with the name of those we have all heard stories about. Since the reunion will be taking place on City property, alcohol will not be allowed, but there will be plenty of tea to drink and hopefully water, if the spigots don't run dry.
We hope to see you all there; it is a perfect opportunity for friends and families to get together, visit, talk about the good times and remember those that have gone before us. If you have any questions or would like to help out on either day let us know, we could sure use the help.
