T. Phillips To Honor Fire Fighters Who Battled Blaze Above Glendora

Members of the community and T. Phillips Alehouse are planning to say a big "thank you" to all the fire fighters who spent days upon days fighting the Colby Fire in the foothills above Glendora and Azusa.

Jennifer Van Der Hoorn, T. Phillips Alehouse manager, and Daniel Boyer, from Southland Properties, are organizing the event scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. at T. Phillips.

"It's going to be an invite to the community as well as the local fire fighters down to T. Phillips. The community's going to come down and buy a drink for them. We're going to make sure the fire fighters are taken care of that night," Boyer said.

Boyer will be helping to spread the word by visiting county fire stations in Glendora to let fire fighters know of the event and hopes that word of mouth will get more fire fighters to join.

"I have about six or seven guys that I know that were up here working on the fire, so I sent them the invite last week and told them to just start spreading the word. Hopefully word travels," Boyer said.

There will be some local bottle rats there too... They usually chase Firemen.

I just think there could be a better way to honor all our firefighters and law enforcement. Side note, as a mother of a fire captain, don't know where you get your info on "6 figures". With all the corruption in cities, my son has taken almost a 40% loss in his pay and lost many good men and still expected to keep his city safe. He , however is still gone a great amount of time,missing out on his family life so his wife can stay home and raise great kids and participate in their schools. His hours of work have not been reduced, just his pay! THANK YOU TO ALL THE FIREFIGHTERS AND POLICE FOR ALL YOUR LONG HOURS PROTECTING OUR CITY!!

I just wanted to say "Thank you" to all of the community who came out and bought drinks for our Firefighters and donated some money for them. They seemed to have a great time and I received wonderful feedback from them as well as "Thank You's." It is funny how they do not get to hang out with many of the other Stations that much so it was cool to listen to their stories and such about this fire. They truly are Heros!!! We also raised $300 that will be donated to the local Glendora Stations. Hopefully, others will follow and come up with ways to support the victims and firefighters who were affected by this fire, if so, let me know and I will support in any way possible.
