Malakwa fire chief Joanne Held poses with sisters Amber Petal and Sheala Riley. The two Malakwa Learning Academy students got to be fire chiefs for after winning a draw with their completed fire escape plan and smoke alarm survey. They won a carbon monoxide detector, a new smoke detector and other fire related goodies.
The Malakwa Volunteer Fire Department will once again be hosting a fireworks event on Halloween night. The fun starts at the fire hall with hotdogs and hot chocolate for a donation at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 31. Fireworks will be set off at 8 p.m. The fire department has donation jars around town for the event. Last year, $1,600 raised went to the fireworks display. To donate or for more information, call contact Held at 250-517-7388.
