The Sunday Salon.com

The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

So Happy Sunday Everyone!

It was a big week for my family. Back in 1988 just two weeks after my dad passed away The Boness Fire Training Center at Madison Area Technical College was dedicated to him and his service. He was very instrumental in getting that facility built. This past Wednesday my family attended the ribbon cutting the new Protective Services Building at M.A.T.C. This building will house the Criminal Justice, Emergency Medical Services and Fire Science programs. The old training center will be torn down and replaced with the latest and greatest technology to help teach skills to firefighters and those training to become firefighters continuing my father’s dream. 25 years after his passing he was fondly remembered during the ceremony and students will be continue to be greeted my his picture when they enter the new building and learn of how hard he fought to get the first facility built.
