On May 5, 2018 the Hamtramck Firefighters celebrated the 100th Anniversary of our current home – the Hamtramck Firehouse on Mackay and Caniff. The firehouse was built in 1918 and was known as “House 2.” In the mid-1970s, House 2 became our sole home when “House 1” (located on Jos. Campau and Grayling) was closed. To celebrate the centennial, we had a luncheon prior to the St. Florian Firefighter March & Mass.
We are selling t-shirts to commemorate the centennial of our home on “Caniff & Mackay.” You can pre-order a t-shirt by clicking here. Pre-orders are only being taken until May 15th, delivery is expected in early June.
You can view pictures from both the 100th Anniversary Celebration and the 20th Annual St. Florian Firefighter March here. Thanks to Joanie Wilding for her photographs.
