It is with deep regret and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of former Assistant Chief Farris Hamlyn Senior. Farris Hamlyn Sr. passed away Tuesday, February 10th 2015. Farris proudly served his community through the High Ridge Fire District for over 50 years. Farris also served the community as a member of the Board of Directors for the district. Most recently Farris and his wife Gert served with the High Ridge Fire District Auxiliary. He will be missed.
Come out and run or walk for a good cause April 4th! Last year hundreds of participants enjoyed a fun and exciting 5K. Participants of all ages could be found along the course that travels west on High Ridge Boulevard from the Firehouse. At the halfway point a refreshment stand quenched thirst and spectators cheered on participants. At the conclusion of the event awards were presented and refreshments served. The HRFD FireHouse 5k has raised over $13000 for Touchpoint which is now a part of Easter Seals Disability Services. Touchpoint has made a huge difference in the life of a little boy who is very special to all of us at High Ridge Fire. We are very passionate about this cause and are pleased to announce that Easter Seals Disability Services will be the 2015 FireHouse 5K charitable recipient. This year we are hoping for an even larger turnout and just as much fun for runners and walkers alike. Don't miss out! See you there!
