Every month, the QFD meets for their monthly business meeting on the first Tuesday of the month. Before the December meeting, we hold voting for our members that have put their names is for executive officers positions and fire chief. We also started a tradition many years ago of having a meal on this night. 2017 was no exception, with the Special Division getting subs and preparing their home made chicken corn soup.
During the meal, some members from the Robert Fulton Order of the Eastern Star made a presentation to the Company. The Eastern Star has been selling an emergency services challenge coin, with proceeds going to emergency service organizations. So far in PA, they have sold well over $10,000.00 worth of coins. In the future, some of this money will make its way to our fire company.
The Eastern Star members presented four coins and certificates to our four Chief Officers. They also provided drinks and dessert for the members.
We will post all of our 2018 officers closer to the end of the year.
Just before 1 am, members were back at the station for a tanker assist and a stand by in Cecil County while the Community Fire Company of Rising Sun worked a barn fire.
