60th District Digest October 23, 2017
Attention all Fire Department Members in Halifax, Charlotte, Prince Edward Counties and Brookneal and Gladys.
I have decided to sponsor a Fireman of the Year Contest award this year!
Each fire department will pick from its membership one person who will be declared their "Member of the Year" based on their overall contributions to the department and that person will receive $100 from my campaign. Then, each Member of the Year will be eligible to win the overall Fireman of the Year for an additional $250 and other prizes! The overall winner will be picked by a committee based on a statement written by each club President as to why their Member should be considered the Fireman of the Year!
To be eligible, each department must submit the following information in writing by NOVEMBER 15, 2017 to:
Delegate James Edmunds
P.O. Box 1115
Halifax, VA 24558
- Fire department name and location
- President's name and contact info.
- The number of members
- The year department was established
Rules: Any FIRE DEPARTMENT ESTABLISHED PRIOR TO 2017 and consisting of 10 or more members may be eligible. Any club not deemed to be legitimate may be disqualified. Individual winning Members of the Year must be submitted by January 10 to the address above. Any entries received after January 10 will not be eligible. Any member may be chosen including children. The overall Fireman of the Year winner will be recognized at a date to be determined and must agree to have their name printed in any media. In addition, the winner must agree to be recognized on the floor of the House of Delegates during the 2018 Session in Richmond. Rules are subject to change.
I am also looking for additional sponsors who would offer additional prizes for either Members of the Year or the overall Sportsman of the Year.
Thanks and please share!!
