No Halloween fireworks

Resident upset that City of Vernon decision has led to a community tradition being scrapped

I had been wondering if there will be Halloween fireworks at Marshall Field this year now that the Okanagan Landing Volunteer Firefighters Association is no longer active.

Well, I just spoke to one of the members of the former association and asked him about the Halloween fireworks.

He let me know that no there will not be any this year as the members of the OKLVFA used to pay for the fireworks out of their own pockets — $6,000 every Halloween.

This is just one more reason it is so sad they quashed the volunteers in the Landing.

They did so much for our community and our schools outside of being excellent at their jobs.

The kids will be so disappointed. It has been a tradition in our home since they were born.

What a shame.
