“Get your PINK on, Marble Falls.”

That is the message from Marble Falls Fire Rescue for a breast cancer awareness event Thursday, Oct. 26.

“Our pink fire truck program escort members of the community affected by breast cancer to the big event at Old Oak Square on Main Street,” Marble Falls Fire Chief Russel Sander said. “We hope everyone will wear ping and join us from 4-6 p.m. for pink cupcakes and cookies and pink lemonade.”

A commemorative photo of what the department wants to be a sea of pink will be taken from atop a ladder truck.

“We are calling on all of Marble Falls to join us,” said Sander.

Local firemen, including members of Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department have been sporting pink logos on special uniform shirts to promote the event.

Sander told the Marble Falls City Council he expected to see them in the crowd.
