This years Area Silent Night Parade and Memorial Service will be hosted by Alpine Township and the Alpine Township Fire Department. This annual event takes place on Thursday evening, October 7th, starting at 7:00 P.M. with a Memorial Service on the lawn of Alpine Township Center, 5255 Alpine Ave. N.W. In case of inclement weather, the service will be moved inside.
The purpose of the memorial service is to pay tribute to all firefighters from the area who passed away last year. The fire service is very dedicated to paying honor and respect to their fellow firefighters and their families.
Following the memorial service, fire departments will participate in a silent parade of fire trucks from the Alpine Township Center, through a part of the Westgate community, (Brookgate to Stoney Creek) to Lamoreaux and completing the parade route at Fifth Third Ball Park. Alpine Township Fire Chief Ron Christians welcomes the public to both the Memorial Service and the Parade.
