A Firefighter’s Prayer

When I am called to duty, God, Wherever flames may rage;

Give me strength to save some life, Whatever be its age.

 Help me embrace a little child Before it is too late;

Or save an older person from The horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert And hear the weakest shout,

And quickly and efficiently, To put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling and To give the best in me;

To guard my every neighbour and Protect his property.

And if according to your Will I have to lose my life,

Please bless with Your protecting hand My children and my wife.

Next week’s Press-Herald

Lots of varied information in next week’s combined Unity-Wilkie paper, including reports on the following:

  • fundraising for the Unity, SK swimming pool complete, now focus is on the ground floor hall;
  • special donation made to Unity fire department;
  • report on Special Olympics conference and awards
  • the Red Cross Day of Pink, which was April 9; and
  • learning how to square dance.

Along with the reading are plenty of photos this week too – along with photos accompanying those stories are pictures of music festival practice at UPS, Revolution Dance Showcase and the baseball hitting clinic.
