Thank you to all residents that stopped by our tent today; it was a pleasure meeting your families. Special thanks to our members who came to pull the tank today! We had a showing of over 30 members which made the 2023 Tank Pull a HUGE success for the Knights of Columbus. Today, we also remember our own fallen FMBA 21 Brother Daniel Meeks who passed away at a young age to health problems. He had a short time on this earth serving the USMC and Clifton Fire Department, but his character and service will not be forgotten. Thank you again for all your continued support.
Clifton FMBA 21 will participate in the 2023 Tank Pull sponsored by the St Philip Knights of Columbus. The event will occur this Sunday, June 11, 2023, at 8 am at 1100 Clifton Avenue. Members of Clifton FMBA 21 will take part in pulling an 80,000-pound tank to commemorate those who have been wounded in combat and will ensure their service will not be forgotten. This year, members of FMBA 21 will be wearing tee shirts with the name of our fallen Brother Daniel Meeks who passed away at a young age to health problems. Daniel Meeks was a Clifton Firefighter and Marine Veteran who passed away at 31 years of age due to a brain tumor. He had a short time with the Clifton Fire Department but his character and service to the USMC will not be forgotten. Please come by and support our team in this fantastic fundraising event!

FMBA 21 members,
We are planning to take part and enter a FMBA team into the 2023 Tank Pull. We are looking for a 20 member team on June 11th to pull a tank. We have done it in the past with great success and in memory of Clifton Firefighter and Marine Veteran Dan Meeks. Dan Meeks passed away at 31 years of age due to a brain tumor. Let your shift VPs know as soon as possible if you can attend. Active and retirees welcome. PBA 36 will have a team as well. If anyone is interested in being the team captain, contact President Daniel Schwaner.
