McGarry Twp. Volunteer Fire Dept., 1965

This clipping is not dated but presumably it is from the same issue of the Northern Daily News as the one above. The cutline reads: " A four-man team of McGarry Volunteer Fire Brigade members runs over a measured 75-yard distance with hoses as they get into condition for the volunteer fire brigade competitions in Cochrane. Members of the McGarry team seen here are Tom Owens, Fern Legault, Bill Budden and Butch Hart. (Schaefer Photo) ".

Can you provide more details?
