The news of the volunteer firefighters

Over the past three weeks, the department has been very busy. They responded to incidents (structure fires) in Montville, Searsmont and as far away as Monroe. These calls reflect the need for more trained firefighters in most cities. All three events were major structural fires requiring great help from nearby towns. It’s really sad to see the destruction that fire brings. But the explosion and the fire of Montville caused the death of three men. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families.

Firefighters Sara Kelemen, Tom Fish, and Lee Pellechia are about to graduate from the elementary fire school they attended. This is a 70+ hour school that will end soon in May. Their completion, along with others in the county, will do much to improve their departments. Thank you to these three and to those of the other cities for their commitment.

A reminder to keep those bottles and cans in the cage at the fire station. Currently, the proceeds from this project go to the Ladies Auxiliary Training Room Fund at the fire station. Please no paper bags and tie the bags. Thank you. We will try to place reusable plastic bags in the cage for anyone to take away if needed.

In our next article, we will return to the profiles of our firefighters and auxiliary ladies. It’s your neighbors who give of themselves by being active as firefighters or in other ways that improve our department and our city.


Happy birthday to Trey Harford on May 10 and Heidie Hurd on May 16. I wish you all a very happy birthday

Rose Dudley, I hope you feel better every day. I often think of you and know that you have been very ill. My thoughts and prayers are with you, my dear friend.

Hope you have an awesome and fun Mother’s Day. My son and daughter-in-law Justin and Kyra took my mom and I to the Texas Roadhouse on April 30 for Mother’s Day. What great food and such a wonderful and special son and daughter-in-law I have! My great-nephew Drake came with us. We had so much fun then went to Walmart. Thank you, Justin and Kyra for all the love you give Nana and me every day.

You are all having a great week!

quote of the week

At the end of life, what really matters is not what you bought but what you built; not what we got, but what we shared; not our skill, but our character; not our success, but our importance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of love. – Unknown author
