Orchard Park Fire District Tri Company Picnic July 15, 2015 - Hillcrest Grove
Every Year the three fire companies in Orchard Park ( Hillcrest, Orchard Park Central and Windom) come together to celebrate their brotherhood at the Hillcrest Grove. Food and games are the plan for the day. Earlier in the day some of the firefighters put down the hose and pick up their golf clubs for a friendly 18 holes of golf. Some say it more dangerous playing golf than fighting a fire. Either way friendship is the plan for the day.
