26 Forest View members just got back from a retreat held in Portsmouth, Va. The focus of the event was to understand the behind the scenes workings of people's jobs and responsibilities. The event, headed up by one of our Deputy Chiefs, DJ Johnston was a big success with all of us learning and creating new ideas for the squad. The weekend was packed with all types of activities including a ball game with fireworks. A big thanks to DJ and his committee for time well spent!
