“Thank You” Dinner

Share via email

Friday, April 4, 2014 – On Friday April 4th, 2014 members of the New Canaan Fire Company and their significant others convened at the Italian Center in Stamford, CT for the annual “Thank You” Dinner. This dinner is for the members of the New Canaan Fire Company to show their appreciation for the encouragement, and sometimes patience, that our significant others have for our choice to server our community, whenever that call might sound. These individuals play an important role in allowing for us to do what we do and it could not be done without their support.
