Years of Service Awards
Were presented to the following members:
Many members of Protection Engine Company No. 3 spent countless hours in preparation for this event. Many of those hours were spent working on the grounds at apple grove park which were suffering from neglect by the municipality due to budgetary restrictions.
Two members from Hose Company No. 1, Debby Kominsky and Sue Lane worked alongside our members and on their own to assist this. For their special efforts both received a letter of commendation. William Corcoran, head of Borough Maintenance who donated much of his evening time assisting us with our project was also presented with a commendation.
