The annual Christmas party is coming up, and I'm inviting everyone and their families to the fire house again.  This year, we will be starting the Christmas party during the week of December 17th, and it will continue through the New Year hopefully.

 

If you guys have any questions, then shoot me a message on Discord or on here.  You don't have to RSVP, but feel free if you want.  I hope to see all of you there for some character development and some traction.


SC Explorers Christmas Tree Sale Fundraiser

28 November 2018 - 04:50 AM

*I pull up to the instructor parking for the academy and I turn my truck off.  I slide my phone into my job shirt pocket after unplugging it and then I put my baseball cap on.  I zip up my job shirt another inch or so before I get out. As I step out and into the bitter cold, I walk into the office.  I say hello to the guys and shoot the breeze with them before heading out and getting everything to set up the sale. We’ve already got the wrapped up trees stacked up behind the office building, right near the academy’s F-250.  As Brooke and Dave show up, I get the trees into the 250 and I drive over to where we need to unload the trees, right near the front gate. Once we get the trees dumped out, I leave Dave to set them up while Sarah and I go and grab the tables and the tents that we need.  Once we get those to the right spot, I head back to the academy shop one last time to grab the generators, extension cords, and the lights. I drive those over and I stop the truck just off the side of the road. I get the generators placed and then I get the lights set up.  More importantly, I get the heaters hooked up beneath the tent that Dave and Sarah just set up.*


‘All right guys, let’s get these sold, and let’s get out of here.  It’s cold out here.’


*I put my department Hi-Viz parka on as we finish setting up the signage up as the kids start coming in.*
