M-43-23 – 5 Year Anniversary Bell Ringing for Firefighter-EMT Juan J. Bucio

5th Anniversary Ceremonial Bell Ringing remembering FF/EMT/ARS Juan Bucio at 8:00am. Keeping the Bucio Family close to our hearts as always but especially on this day.


After a 5 year hiatus I have decided to relaunch the CFD Memorial Day Parade and Mass.  It will be Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2023 at the Church of The Holy Family, 1080 W Roosevelt Road.  The parade of uniformed members will begin at 9:45 followed by the Mass at 10am.  We will be honoring all the LODD, active members and retired members who have died since May 1, 2018.  I hope you are able to attend and, as importantly, get the word out to any family members of those we will be honoring.  Please feel free to post the info on any of your social media platforms:
