Bridgewater Fire Department Band

81 Dominion St. Bridgewater. Nova Scotia

Saturday August 20th

A morning of sadness.  Slowly, the buses were packed, final photographs taken, many hugs exchanged and a few tears shed as we took our leave of our West Yorkshire friends.  After the WYFRS Band’s highly successful visit to Nova Scotia last year and the renewal and strengthening of musical friendships this year, neither band was prepared for this to be The End.  The question on everyone’s mind was “When can we do this again?”  And before we left the WYFRS Headquarters that morning, it was decided by the members of both bands that Bridgewater should again host West Yorkshire in 2013, and the Bridgewater band return to England in 2015.  Brainstorming for fundraising, and ideas for activities in Nova Scotia in two years’ time began before the buses were on the highway and heading back to Manchester International Airport.
