    Thank you to everyone that came out to support our MDA/Rockbottom Fire Chief Ale fundraiser over the past month!  The fundraiser continues until April 7th, so please feel free to stop on by and have a Fire Chief Ale in support of muscular dystrophy.  We also want to thank all of the volunteers from Local 5 that helped make this event a success yet again.  It was a pleasure to get to spend time with our very own Cary Sloan and Savannah Clear who are both affected with different forms of MD and both made a special appearance at Rock Bottom on ST Paddy's day!  It was a great time and so many friends and family were able to stop by and share time with them both.  We will continue to keep up the fight until we find a cure!

    In June of 2016 Local 5 firefighters will again venture up to the Easter Seals camp near Winter Park to spend a fulfilling week with our MDA kids.  This is very rewarding and activity filled week where our Firefighters become a companion to a child with Muscular Dystrophy and they will get to experience fishing, arts/crafts, games, swimming, horseback riding, and much more!  If you are interested in becoming a counselor please contact Kurtz 719-291-1076
