20th Anniversary of South Canyon Event Planned

by Chuck Sheley |

From an email from Chris Farinetti (FBX-79) to NSA President Jim Cherry (MSO-58):

"I wanted to contact you regarding the 20th Anniversary of the South Canyon tragedy. We're putting together a Type 3 organization to facilitate a smooth weekend of events for families and local agencies who will be attending.

We're expecting local government, the governor and potentially Washington officials. We prefer a small commemorative event.

Families and individuals will be attending from all over the country similar to your smokejumper reunions.
