    Talking 05 AFGP Awards will start on Friday!

    Contrary to what some "jokester" posted in another thread, I have actually recieved a confirmation from fire grant support that the awards will start on this Friday , August 19. I have the email confirmation to prove this!

    I have also already heard from one of my departments this morning who recieved the call from their US Congressman last night.

    Congratulations to all. This race is on!

    Default I don't know

    Not that I don't believe you all, but until I get the 'Official Notice' I'm still not holding my breath. Let's just say I've been a Philly sports fan for too long to get my hopes up...although that Forsberg signing looks good...the Phils are a game back in the wild card race...and other than that inteception McNabb threw the other night...T.O. who?...

    Default It is true

    I have also spoken with a lady named Tara @ the help desk ! This Friday they are definitely coming. Wish me luck! We haven't got anything yet since the program started. Our newest piece is an 81 Duplex. It really needs to be replaced.

    Thumbs up I can confirm the same in Maine.

    As you stated above KTB... and I wrote in a post to another thread, Olympia Snow's office in Maine made a round of calls to several local departments (including ours) to issue congratulations and said that announcements will start soon. I took from my Capt. and the Chief that she inferred this Friday. Mark

    Talking Alrighty then!

    Nice to see a little interstate rivalry!...other than being from the same state we have another thing in common in that both our team lost to the eventual Champions...

    But at least OUR team covered the spread...

    Anyway, I got a little antsy yesterday, and called my congressman's office about our possible award. Long story very short, they didn't hear anything, but lo and behold this morning in my 'inbox' was the official notification! It'll be nice to see our little hamlet's name on the awardees. Just in time for our 100th Anniversary!
