Subject: Ukrainian fire truck..

One dark night outside a small town in Alberta, a fire started inside the local sausage plant

and, in the blink of an eye, it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around.

When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the sausage company president rushed to the fire chief and said, 'All of our secret formulas are in the vault in the centre of the plant. They must be saved and I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact.'

But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments from surrounding towns had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files.

From a distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Vegreville rural township volunteer fire department composed mainly of Ukrainians over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine, operated by these Ukrainians, passed all the newer sleek engines parked outside the plant and drove straight into the middle of the inferno.

Outside, the other firemen watched in amazement as the Ukrainian old timers jumped off and began to fight the fire with a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, the Vegreville old-timers had extinguished the fire and saved the secret formulas.

The grateful sausage company president joyfully announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave, elderly Ukrainian firefighters.

The local TV news reporters rushed in after capturing the event on film asking, 'What are you going to do with all that money?'

'Vell,' said Nick Kovalchuk, the 70-year-old fire chief,

'.....da furst ting vee gonna do is fix da brakes on dat f.....ing truck.'

As an Albertan, living rural not that far from Vegreville (Tofield area) and knowing some of the
best sausage in the world comes from Mundare(where the biggest sausage in the world is located) not
far from Vegreville (where the biggest easter egg in the world is located) I read in amazement the story
above. As I read I could see in my minds eye the story unfolding...I know the towns, the streets, the people...
Its unsettling to see the past in your local unfolding so that so many people from so far away get a glimpse
of my part of the world. But I know its best when the truth is told and we are greatful that it was told with
such passion and sincerity......and yes, the recipe is still around, and the best sausage in the world is still
being made.....thanks to those brave Ukrainians, on that fatefull day.......Thanks Dad!
