ODHFS Central Region Update
Sun. Nov 3rd 2019

ODHFS Central Region Members:

Since my last newsletter I received information on the Prince George Parade which is now listed below.     

Also, ODHFS received a request by someone in Henrico that wants "to hire" an antique fire apparatus to attend their son's 4th birthday party that will be held in the Short Pump/Wyndham area in the afternoon on December 7.  If you can assist with this request please contact Blakelyn Tindall at ASAP.  

Up-coming events in the Central Region that are on the ODHFS website calendar include:

  • 11/10/19  Hopewell Veterans Parade  4 PM  Line up 2:30 PM  Harvey King will be attending this parade and the application has been submitted.   If you can join Harvey, let me know so I can put you in touch with him.  

  • 11/24/19  Ashland/Hanover Olde Time Holiday Parade 2 PM.  If you desire to attend you must register at: .

  • 12/3/2019  Colonial Heights Parade  7 PM  This parade limits the number of units that can participate so if you are interested in attending or can drive one of Tommy’s units, please contact Tommy Herman  know ASAP.

  • 12/8/19  Chester Kiwanis Christmas Parade  2 PM.  ODHFS will be providing Santa's Sleigh again this year.  If you can participate with your antique or can assist Tommy driving one of  his please let him and me know.

  • 12/8/18  Hopewell Christmas Parade 4 PM.   Unfortunately this parade begins before the Chester Parade ends.  If you do desire to represent ODHFS at this one, you must notify Tommy ASAP as ODHFS has not submitted an application yet.

  • 12/14/19  Powhatan Christmas Parade  3 PM.  Line up at Powhatan Fire Company 1 @ 2 PM.  Floyd Greene will be coordinating ODHFS units attending.  I know of at least one ODHFS apparatus that is planning on attending so I will be submitting the application.  If you would also planning on participating, please let me know.

Don't forget to keep a regular check on the ODHFS Website Event Calendar for other events that may not be in the Central Region but are in other parts of the Commonwealth or beyond that you might be intersected in.
