2018 was a good year for the department. With a wide array of changes and challenges the department faced-it ended on a solid note.
At the annual meeting held in December, elections were held for board and officer positions. All of the current officers will continue to hold their positions for 2019 with a few small changes to the members at large and county representatives.
The annual meeting had a good attendance and Chief Humbles shared a recap on 2018 and the departments aspirations for 2019 and beyond.
Community members were called to help in whatever capacity they are capable of helping, by donations or by volunteering.
One of the changes this year was hosting the Senior Citizens in the fire department building for their weekly meetings and monthly railroad lunches. It has been a great way for the department to give back beyond their normal capabilities and it has been a good partnership.
At the annual meeting, recognition awards were given out to department members who showed admirable dedication to serve the department. In addition, gift cards were handed out to ALL members that achieved 100 hours of service and worked at least one night of bingo.
The department is looking forward to 2019 with strong leadership and promising changes.
