June Meeting Site Announced

A very exciting meeting has been planned for our June monthly gathering. However, note the change from our usual meeting date. The June meeting will take place on Thursday, May 31.

This change has been necessitated by an offer from the Peninsula Fire Buff Club of San Mateo County. They have cordially invited us, and the Phoenix Society of San Francisco, to a joint buff meeting to be held at South San Francisco Fire Department’s Station 61, 480 North Canal Street, South San Francisco (Thomas Bros. Map page 707, H3).

The evening will start at 6:30 P.M. with a dinner provided by South City Fire. The program will follow at approximately 7:30 P.M. Our SSFFD hosts will be Chief Phil White and Deputy Chief Dick Dennen.

The program will feature a tour of the new Headquarters Station, Burn Tower demonstration, Fire prop attack, and a Canine Search & Rescue demonstration.

We wish to thank Bob Romanoff, president of the Peninsula Fire Buff Club, for this very generous offer. Bob requests that, in order to allow for planning of the dinner and evening, that we provide him with a headcount by Thursday, May 24.

If you plan on attending, provide your name to John Whitaker (jswhitak@pacbell.net) no later than May 23.

We look forward to a very special evening and invite you to join us.
