Jay Dearman’s Memorial

This is an information update regarding the memorial for GVFD firefighter Jay Dearman, scheduled for Feb.10, 14:00 hrs. at the Albert Reed Memorial Firehall, 730 Church st.

We are asking that anyone wishing to speak at the memorial contact GVFFA president Jenn Knight via email asap to have your name put on the list in advance of the gathering.



To anyone attending from off island, we have arranged for our local bus to meet the 11:55 and the 13:10 ferry to shuttle people to the hall.

The bus will also shuttle people from the hall back to the ferry in time for the 16:20 and 17:35 sailings.

Follow the signs to various parking sites at the Church, the lower field at the firehall and a parking area past the hall.

To ensure no obstructions in the event of a response by BCAS or the Fire Dept., we will be restricting parking on Church street for the duration  of the event.

For more information, please contact the firehall office at 250-247-9677.
