Two decades as a dedicated volunteer fire fighter in the Village of Midway has earned Gord Kamigochi some well-deserved recognition.

At Monday’s meeting of the Village of Midway council, the Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal was awarded to Gordon Kamigochi in recognition of his 20 years of “loyal and exemplary service to the public security of Canada” with the Midway Volunteer Fire Department.

He received a medallion and certificate signed by the Governor General of Canada.

“When I first came to town, one of the first groups that made contact with me and really started including me in anything was the fire department,” said Midway mayor Randy Kappes. “It was very appreciated; in a small town where you don’t really have any connection at all, it is nice to have somebody reach out. To one of those people who was part of that, it is my great pleasure to present a 20-year service medallion.”

Fire Chief Walter Osellame and eight other members of the fire department who live in the community attended the ceremony.
