The Villages Public Safety Department is proud to announce that on Friday, November 16 at 3pm we will be a host fire station for FDNY Rescue 5 from The Remembrance Rescue Project. Project Remembrance works with fire departments across the country to host the Rescues throughout the year. The Project coordinates with host fire departments to facilitate 9/11 educational programming, memorials and remembrance events. The Project strives to keep the memories alive of those lost on September 11th and all firefighters killed in the line of duty every year.
Rescue 5 will also be travelling to the John Brucker Memorial Golf Tournament on Saturday, November 17 hosted at Harbour Hills County Club. The Tournament began as a labor of love to honor a beloved brother and friend who died on June 12, 2010 as the result of injuries sustained in a vehicle accident. The Community is encouraged to come out and see this piece of traveling history on 3pm Friday, November 16, 2012 at 3035 Morse Boulevard.
If you would like more information regarding the John Brucker Memorial Golf Tournament please contact: Joe Peters @ 352-989-6141 or Bradley Mattingly @ 407-427-0572 for details.
