What's New at IAFF Local 21
59th Annual Gillette Children's Carnival

This is a reminder that the Gillette Carnival is this Wednesday, July 18th with set up starting at 9:00 am with the carnival running from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm.  Please refer to the attached documents for free parking that will be provided at the event.  We have approval from Administration to wear uniforms at this local 21 event so that the kids are able to see the presence of firefighters. I have only received a handful of emails from people that are able to attend.  Please consider coming to help out even if you cannot stay for the whole time.  The kids that are a part of this hospital truly look forward to this event and schedule their appointments around it every summer.  Family and friends are also welcome to join in the fun.  If you have any questions please let me know.

Please park in the East Ramp to relieve pressure in the west ramp for patients and families.

It's that time of year again for the Gillette Carnival! It's an opportunity to come together as Local 21 to host the 59th Annual Gillette Children's Carnival on July 18th.  Any and all volunteers are greatly appreciated to help make this event a success including family and friends.  The carnival will take place in the Gillette Parking ramp on level E (Same location as previous year).  There will be parking vouchers provided for the South Parking ramp (separate ramp than the carnival to decrease congestion from the event).

Carnival: 10:30-1:30 pm

Clean up following the carnival with some assistance needed to unload at Station 6 following the carnival.

Please send an email it you are able to make the event so I know the number of volunteers that are available to help.  Thanks again in advance for helping make this event successful!

TPT is hosting The Wall That Heals ( from June 21-24 at the State Capitol in St. Paul, MN. The Wall That Heals is a traveling ¾ replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC and will visit 38 cities this year.

We need help to take it down on Sunday, June 24 starting at 3pm. We are in need of able-bodied persons able to bend and lift. It should take about 4 hours with 15 people, but of course the more people, the fewer hours it will take.

If you are interested, please email me at Either way, I do hope you swing by and visit us. We will have readings of the name, opening ceremony, and much more happening during these days which you can visit at
