The Nelson Fire Hall is celebrating its 100th anniversary with an open house celebration on Saturday. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. there will be a barbecue, cake and fun activities for the whole family.

Take a tour of the old fire hall, check out the equipment and talk to the firefighters. The whole community is invited to visit one of Nelson’s great landmarks.

On Tuesday, (L-R) captain Jeff Hebert, firefighter Chris Thast and chief Simon Grypma prepared the 1944 Bickle-Seagrave pumper 1 that is part of the firehall’s museum. The old truck was manufactured in Woodstock, Ontario during wartime and is one of the great historical pieces in the museum that people will be able to check out on Saturday.
