Firefighters’ Reception and Awards Presentation
Friday, May 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The 2017 Firefighters’ Reception and Awards, sponsored by Keplinger Repair Service, honors firefighters and emergency medical personnel and also provides awards to units participating in the Firefighters’ Parade. It will be held on the same night as the parade – Friday, May 5 – at the Millwood Station Event Center on Costello Drive, which is owned by the Millwood Station Fire and Rescue Company of Frederick County.
The event is free for uniformed personnel and invited guests thanks to outstanding sponsors. The doors open at 6 p.m., and awards will be given following the conclusion of the Firefighters’ Parade. The Festival and its volunteers applaud all firefighters and emergency medical personnel who help to make our communities safer places to live.
The scope of the evening will be to recognize the firefighters and present the Firefighters’ Parade awards. At this event, the fire and rescue family and community will have an opportunity to gather and commend their efforts. Hopefully the Firefighters’ Grand Marshal will be in town to congratulate and present some of the awards. This event is an evening to celebrate the fire and rescue family.
