The community came out Saturday afternoon to celebrate Mission fire station three's 20th anniversary.

A full hall of firefighters and many who helped bring the hall to life in 1991 were on hand to commemorate the occasion, including former district councillors, MLAs and retired firefighters.

Cutting the cake for the event was Tom O'Beirne, who chaired the Southwest Mission Ratepayers when work to build the hall began.

The event also marked a change of leadership at the hall, with District Chief Mike Lavallee retiring and handing his responsibilities over to Len Pesonen. These two men, along with three others, were original members of the station.

More photographs from the event are available here.
