The First Annual "Celebration of Life River Ride and Festival" in memory of Firefighter Dewitt Peake will be held at the Pine Grove Fire Department Saturday beginning with registration at 9 a.m. The address for the event is 833 Pine Grove Road Lugoff, SC 29078.

There is no registration fee for the ride or the event, but donations are welcomed. This is a family-oriented event with kid’s rides, bounce houses, vendor tables, games, singing groups, and fire truck and emergency vehicle displays. Food will also be served for free around noon when the ride concludes.

The ride will include a trip around Lake Wateree with 2 stops beginning at 10:30 a.m. concluding back at Pine Grove Fire Department for lunch. Riders may ride motorcycles or vehicles for the memorial ride and attendees are not required to ride to attend the event. This free event is made possible by donations from local fire departments, businesses, and community members.

Dewitt Peake was a 35-year veteran of the Pine Grove Fire Department and very active in Pine Grove Baptist Church and the community. Dewitt was killed by an impaired driver on January 11, 2013 and left behind a wife, 5 children, and 3 grandchildren. This event is a celebration of his life by members of the Lugoff Community and community members from across the state. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Pine Grove Fire Department and the Lugoff Fire Department Firefighting Explorer Program.

For more information on the event, to donate, or to secure a vendor table, contact Chad Porter, Event Coordinator, at (803) 318-7996 or email chad@lugoff fire.com.
