Dennis Macklem

Radio Operator – #21

Favorite Memory

Between May 1984 and March 1986 I started a fire department in Minton, SK (POP 131). We started with a 1955 Ford International Truck and built a firetruck, firehall from there. In Morden I really appreciate remembering the honorary members and their spouses at all social events. Being fire hall Grandpa!
