National Volunteer Appreciation Week Continued; Life Members

An old picture but many Ex Chiefs and Life Members Larry Thiel, John Byrne, Jeff Morris, Hector Malave, Doug Watt, and Mike McMahon can be seen above.

For today’s National Volunteer Apreciation Week post I’d like to recognize our Life Members. Life Members are the roots of our department. These individuals have maintained call percentages, attended meetings, and participated in fund drive for a minimum of 20 years. Nope, that’s not a typo, these guys have given it their all for 20 years! They have given our department an unthinkable amount of time and have built it to  what it is today. Though few Life Members are still active on the fire line, many of them are still active on our business side and religiously attend our monthly meetings to contribute their years of experience and knowledge to help the department grow. A very sincere thank you goes out to all of the below Life Members!
