September 7, 8 and 9, 2012 are the dates for the 49th Annual Maine State Federation of Fire Fighters Convention, to be held in Freeport, Maine.
Each town fire department hosting the convention has the opportunity to showcase their town and all the amenities to be found there.
So, what's on tap for the fire fighters and their spouses when they come to Freeport? Well, the convention details are a bit of a secret. It seems the Freeport FD wants to surprise the conventioneers with some activities that are above and beyond the usual! I did hear mention of a parade, a fantastic banquet, a muster and the usual activities. What else they have up their sleeves, we'll need to wait and see!
I do know what the conventioneers can find around town in Freeport! Great restaurants, excellent shopping, beautiful outdoor scenery with hiking and kayaking, live theater, a new movie theater and much more.
Because 2012 is also LL Bean's 100th anniversary, there are all kinds of activities planned there all year long.
We hope you're planning to come to Freeport for the 49th Annual Convention, either as a conventioneer or to watch the parades and muster and other activities as a visitor.
We're offering a patch from the Wiccopee VFD in NY for those conventioneers staying here at White Cedar Inn over the convention weekend. If you're a collector, here's an opportunity to add to your collection. Patches are limited, first come, first served. Limit one patch per room. When you make your reservation, please mention you're a FD member attending the convention. (PS- if you'd like to trade a patch from your FD for the one from Wiccopee, my dad would really appreciate that!)
Take a look here for information about the inn. You can make your reservation online or give us a call.A full breakfast is included in the rate as well as afternoon refreshments, WiFi and parking. Walk to the Freeport FD, restaurants, shops, movie theater and more.
Thank you for your service to your community and the great state of Maine!
