The chorus has great relationship with the Ontario Fire Chiefs, and has been invited to the annual Fire Chiefs Memorial Service for the past 14 years. This year's service was on May 3rd, 2024.
A bagpipe band ushered in the colours to start the ceremony, followed by the chorus leading O Canada.
It is a very moving service honouring all the Ontario Fire Chiefs who passed away in the previous 12 months.
Their names are called out individually, and a representative from their last firehouse places a silver helmet on the dias at the front.
There is a short address from a fire chaplain, and a few prayers.  We also sang Hallelujah, and Let there be Peace on Earth, closing with God Save the King.
We have been invited back for the 2025 memorial next May.
