The ribbon was cut, speeches were made, hands were shook, and the bands played. The Kindersley Fire Hall was opened to the public last night and it certainly was a grand opening.
Mayor Rod Perkins started speeches by thanking the local firefighters for bravely putting themselves in the face of danger for the citizens of Kindersley. Reeve of the RM of Kindersley Lionel Story expressed the importance of the facility for the entire area and how it will serve this region for a long time to come. Well spoken fire chief Jeff Soveran completed the speeches and cut the ribbon on schedule at 5:30pm.
Kindersley Fire Department members were on hand and having fun, but also working at the event. Byron Ismond and Ron Cales were at the BBQ. Myles Perrin and Cody Welker were directing people to the food line up. Cody Phinney and Mitch Hope were the tour guides. All members were on hand and helping out setting up and selling some swag.
If you saw smoke it was either from the BBQ or the new public education trailer. A line of eager Kindersley residents went through the trailer and visited with each other as a sunny evening slowly crept into a quiet night. Seven o'clock came too soon, but everyone enjoyed the grand opening.
