PA 12 National Fire Academy Presents Check
On January 12th 2013 President of Pa.12 Brian Sames and Treasurer Bob Heitz went to the National Fire Academy in Emmittsburg, Md. to present them with a check for $6,000 from monies that were raised during the Red Knights International Convention in Gettysburg,Pa. August 2012. We presented the check to Ron Siarnicki executive director of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The money will go towards helping survivors and there familes while at the academy for memorial weekend and also for a camp that they started to help the children.
Other money that was raised will be donated to a few other charities, one will be the local burn center in our area and we will be giving a check to the International board for upkeep at our Red Knights memorial.
We would to thank Thank all who attended the 2012 convention and helped to make it the largest convention ever held.
