City of Chilliwack fire fighters had some fun raising money for the burn unit last Saturday at Little Mountain Greenhouses.

 

hat an amazing Garden Sale & Fall Festival we hosted over the weekend. If you had a chance to drop by our annual Fall Festival, thank-you for coming and we hope you had fun. Our community raised $1872 for the Firefighters Burn Unit at the BC Children's Hospital.
 

Our firefighters were on fire on Saturday: serving up delicious food & taking part in a fun Pie Eating Contest. We had 8 friends take in the pie eating contest, and Crystal (Chwk. Firefighter) ended up winning, beating out her 2 boys and 3 co-workers.


This event was made possible by local companies and individuals. A special thank-you to Johnston's Meats, for donating Pork to the Fall Festival & attending the event throughout the day.

 

Marsia, sold 'bacon' shirts at our event, and donated all of her proceeds to the Firefighter Burn Unit.

 

Poomba's Smokehouse prepared the delicious pulled pork and donated his secret sauce to make it extra yummy. Sparkes Corn is always a huge hit, and we are so thankful to our friend Ian for donating corn on the cob to help complete this meal.
 

We adore Lori and Rick from Spiderlodge Music School. They were fantastic and really helped make this event happen.


It was great seeing Smokey the Bear, who made several guest appearances throughout the day.

 

A special thank-you to the national tree forest volunteers & our face painters.


We hope you enjoyed yourself & took home some great garden deals and fun memories. Join us on Facebook for more pictures and fun from the Annual Fall Festival at LMG.
