Relax and enjoy the ride! Leave the driving to us, while socializing with our members, on a chartered Coach to Ottawa.

Once again, Local 3888 is organizing a group room rate and fun, safe travel, to the Annual Memorial LODD Service held at the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Ottawa on Sunday, September. 10th, 2023 at 10:30 am.

Transportation is on us!

We will be chartering a coach, so we can travel as a group Saturday, September 9th, 2023. Kick back while sharing stories and jokes as we travel in safety. Singalongs are greatly encouraged. We will be arriving for check-in mid-afternoon. Later that evening, you’re welcome to join other locals from across Canada at the Byward Market celebrations.

The coach will leave Station 441 (740 Martingrove Rd.) on Saturday, September 9th at 08:30hrs, then on to Station 243 (4562 Sheppard Ave. E.) by 9:30hrs, then stopping briefly at the Whitby Go Station by 10:15hrs. We are scheduled to arrive at our hotel in Ottawa around 1500hrs.

After the Ceremony on Sunday, a coach will retrace its steps, ending up at Martingrove sometime early Sunday evening.
