Over the last year, we have seen an all-time high in memberships at the Rosthern fire hall as well as events and activities put on by the team that show they continue to be a driving force in our community.

From small bits of fun like opening fire hydrants for the kids on scorching days over the summer to huge endeavours like the steak night fundraiser held in August, the dedication and forward thinking of this team of volunteers is admirable.
