101th Annual Firemen’s Field Day Parade & Muster

The York Village FD cordially invites all area firefighters to attend our 101th annual Firemen’s Field Day Parade & Muster.

This will be held in York, Maine on Saturday August 19, 2017. The parade begins at noon sharp on the lower end of Woodbridge Rd.

We would appreciate a piece of apparatus for the parade. There will be a firemen’s muster held immediately following the parade at Moulton Park US Route 1A York Harbor. Refreshments will be served. There are only a few field days left each summer and we need your help so we can maintain one of the “old traditions”.

Area Chief officers please post this notice at your stations.

Last September, we hosted the MSFFF Convention for our 100th birthday, which was very well attended, so we wish to thank all who participated.

Hope to see you all again on the 19th.
