Ladies of the town formed an Auxiliary, fund raisers were held and by October of 1963, local residents were putting a roof on the Fire Department's cinder block building on Tannery Creek Road. It is still home to the Department today.
All members are unpaid volunteers who respond to many emergencies. The latest being the fire that destroyed the Lindley Highway Department's Garage and the equipment stored there on Saturday January 5, 2013.( My attempt to copy a short newspaper article in today's Elmira's Star Gazette about the fire didn't work-but is on line to read. )
Many times over the past 50 years,these volunteers have served their town in all kinds of weather, emergencies and conditions. We probably don't say Thank You often enough but your services to the community are appreciated.
Thank you ..
