At Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department’s quarterly meeting on Oct. 28, service pins were awarded as follows:
5 years to Jesse Boyce, Steve Colbert and Dave Gardner.
10 years to Dalton West
20 years to Al Boyce, Montana Forster and Ted Weight.
Deputy Fire Chief and Secretary/Treasurer Ted Weight has retired from both offices but will remain a firefighter. Dori Dennison was warmly welcomed as the new Deputy Fire Chief. Assistant Fire Chief Terry Allan, who already has his 35-year pin, stepped down, and Tom Nash has graciously taken over that office.
Firefighters, male or female, are always in demand; email: firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by a practice.
