Christmas comes early to the Bay de Verde Fire Department.

Wayne Quinlan of Quinlan Brothers Limited in Bay de Verde, delivered a very generous gift of $5,000 to Bay de Verde Fire Department Fire Chief Ambrose Broaders this week.

It was greatly appreciated by the fire department and Town of Bay De Verde.

This was a commitment made by Quinlan Brothers Limited when the new truck arrived, to help stock the equipment on the truck.

Some items needed are hose, nozzles and connections, along with various other odds and ends.

The fire department is doing well and with donations like this, makes it all the better.

Quinlan Brothers Limited is one of Newfoundland's biggest seafood processors. The company processes crab, shrimp, cod, capelin, etc.

It is one of the fastest growing seafood producers in the province in spite of all the downsizing, this company has grown.

At this time we would like to thank anyone who has helped us over the year in any way.

And, wish the residents of Bay de Verde, Red Head Cove and Grates Cove a Merry Fire Free Christmas.

    It is good to see a man with Mr. Quinlan's financial resources give back to the Trinity-Conception communities a generous gift $5,000 - maybe Mr. Quinlan will consider being as generous with his companies wages to attract & retain local workers & not have to resort to temporary foreign workers to staff his operation. Mr. Quinlan's great wealth has been a product of his business skills & the hard work of the local workers that helped contribute to his success - maybe it is time to give back to the community with better wages to help build healthier & stronger communities in rural Newfoundland. $5,000 is a generous gift for many, but Mr. Quinlan can afford to do more with his business skills and his responsibility to his community & workers.
