Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers for their service. I only wish I could get a list of what companies (i.e. Stations) represent which communities so they can also be acknowledged. Back in the day it was "Garden City Fire Company" Now it is Station ##. So an old-timer former smoke-eater, who only knows names, not station numbers, is in the dark!.
Today several of our members attended the Memorial Service for Past President Lawrence “Larry” Luder. Larry was a member of the Swarthmore Fire & Protective Assn. - Station 14 for 50+ years. He will be deeply missed by all. ... See MoreSee Less
