On Sunday, June 4, 2023, members of the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad and the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company got together for an afternoon of fun, food, games and comradery at our annual picnic. Held at the Dulles Golf Center and Sports Park, our members and their families of all ages enjoyed games, inflatable slides and bounce houses, the facility’s driving range, miniature golf and batting cages, along with great food, and an ice cream truck. If that wasn’t enough, you could try face painting or commission a custom balloon animal. The afternoon offered our members and families a chance to meet new friends, get to know families and reconnect with old friends. This year was even better, as we were joined by our friends and colleagues from Sterling Fire. We work together, so it makes great sense to play together, too.
The picnic featured a tug-of-war competition between Sterling Rescue and Sterling Fire. Sterling Rescue took home the trophy in this lighthearted “competition”, which demonstrated our ability to win when we had an almost three-to-one advantage over Sterling Fire in terms of number of people on the rope.
