Per­fect pan­cakes

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

This fire de­part­ment has al­ways been heav­ily in­volved in the com­mu­nity and that’s not likely to change un­der the new fire chief, an ac­tive com­mu­nity vol­un­teer him­self for sev­eral years. “The fire de­part­ment helps out at BorderFest, with the an­nual blood drive, the toy drive and we used to help with the com­mu­nity Christ­mas Din­ner. We’ll be send­ing our mas­cot, Sparky, to Stanstead’s Win­ter Fun Day and putting in a broom­ball team,” men­tioned the fire chief.

“I’ve en­joyed my first month as the fire chief. There was a lot of work, a lot of pa­per­work to go through and lots of emails to an­swer, lots of plan­ning. I’m really for­tu­nate to have such a great team here in Stanstead. I wouldn’t have stepped up to do this job with­out this team; they really back you up,” he con­cluded.

Ross Coté was busy flip­ping pan­cakes at last night’s Shrove Tues­day sup­per at the Stanstead South United Church while Janet Dezan su­per­vised. See ar­ti­cle p. 16.
