This year’s annual Austin Fire Museum and ESPADA (Emergency Services Pipes and Drums Assoc.) San Jacinto Day Celebration will be held on Saturday, April 17 at the Waterford House Austin. The San Jacinto Celebration also includes the annual Austin Fire Department Awards Ceremony. The awards are presented to Austin firefighters for acts of rescue, commendation, and community service performed in 2009. The highlight of this year’s awards ceremony will be a posthumous Medal of Honor awarded to Engine 6 Firefighter James T. Glass who died of injuries sustained at a fire on July 23, 1916.
Tickets are 30.00 each for AFD Museum Members and 35.00 each for non-members. This includes dinner, an open bar, and live entertainment featuring the GUY FORSYTH BAND. People wishing to sign up as AFD Museum members will also receive the 30.00 ticket price. In order to receive the member price, tickets must be purchased in person from any one of our ticket sales volunteer representatives. Full price tickets may be sold right here using Paypal.
In keeping with tradition, there will be a silent auction featuring many great gifts, items, and services with the proceeds benefiting ESPADA.
A very special thank you to Siddon’s Fire Apparatus for being our Underwriter for this event!
