On Sunday August 7, 2016 the Brewster Fire Department proudly supported the bike riders participating in the Pan-Mass Challenge through the awe-inspiring display of an American Flag from the department’s aerial ladder in front of Fire Headquarters during the popular fund raising bike race. Many of the riders shouted their thanks as they rode past the flag with a number stopping to take photos in front of this stunning American icon. The PMC Challenge is an athletic event started in 1980 to raise money for cancer research. The race has a number of routes for bikers to ride including the most popular which is a two-day event starting in Wellsley and ending in Provincetown which runs through 46 Massachusetts communities.
The Brewster Fire Department would like to thank all of the riders for the determination and dedication they displayed in completing the challenge and their admirable support of cancer research. A special shout out goes to the team from Pomroy Associates who is the owner’s project manager for the current fire station construction project.
