The 20th Anniversary of the Suffield Fireman’s Road Race was an example of the character of our rural community. For months, the Suffield Fireman’s Association planned this event with the help of both long time and new sponsors. Many runners from 1996 made their way back to Suffield and the ages of our participants now range from toddlers to “Masters” over 80. It is refreshing to watch the Town of Suffield come together to support a healthy life style, volunteerism and community spirit unknown in other places in the world. Given recent world events, our small town is a strong example of what is still promising in our state and our country.
The Simison Family wishes to thank each and everyone who made this event an unqualified success for Suffield and in memory of Paul.
