    Default IL fallen firefighters memorial

    Does anybody know the schedule of events for the 2006 ceremony in Springfield or how things have typically been done? I am trying to work out work schedules to get down there. thanks

    I am not sure the schedule of events, but the Blackhawk Fire Fighter's Association is sponsoring a Bus Trip to Springfield that day. The cost is $20.00/person. The bus leaves from Buster's Truck Stop (I-39 and Rte. 34) in Mendota at 0645 and returns at 1630. Seating is limited to the first 55 people and usually fills fast.

    Shoot me an e-mail for more info...or check out Blackhawk's website and look at the calendar of events (www.bffa.net).
