The Chase Fire Department was shined, polished and filled with excitement last weekend as the First Annual Lobster Fest got underway

The Chase Fire Department was shined, polished and filled with excitement last weekend as the First Annual Lobster Fest got underway. The Chase FireFighter’s Association celebrated the event Saturday, June 13.

The association members spent weeks organizing the event, which saw 108 lobsters making their way from the ocean of Nova Scotia to the dining tables at the Chase Firehall.

With an almost sold-out crowd, not a lobster was spared. Local firefighters, wearing their finest dress blues served the meals, while guests toured the department.

Participants were able to see a live auto extrication demonstration, see some of the tools in action, and even win prizes including tennis rackets, lobster and survival kits.

A silent auction provided guests a chance to take home even more goodie.

The Chase Firefighter’s Association appreciates the community’s support.

The department has been working on developing a number of events. Their First Annual Cache Bash, set for Aug. 22, is expected to help boost tourism and promote local business, all while providing the opportunity for families and individuals to create memories to last a lifetime.

The Chase Firefighter’s Association invites Chase residents to follow their Facebook page ‘Chase Fire Rescue’ to keep track of what they are up to, learn about upcoming events, and view pictures from past events.

If you have questions or concerns, the Chase Firefighter’s Association want to hear from you. Contact the association through Facebook or by email at
