Memorial Day festivities on Dewees

Fire Truck Parade to Huyler House

The Dewees Island community celebrated Memorial Day in style, honoring our veterans with a flag salute, some patriotic songs, a picnic, and kids activities.  The fire department showed off what our trucks can do; after parading to the Huyler House we got to see the hoses in action.  We all enjoyed a feast, and Rita Snipes organized children’s activities like face painting, three legged races, and games.  In addition, the Fire Chief Randy and the fire department organized an informational session about being prepared for fires and hurricanes (more on this later.)
