Congrats to Our Accomplished Members
Last night, we honored the accomplishments of our members at our annual member appreciation banquet. This year’s award winners are as follows:
- Junior of the Year: Joe Kunz
- Rookie of the Year: David Eichenlaub
- Training Dedication: Jonathan Kim
- Responder Award : Lee Crowder
- Chief’s Award: Bill Glikes
- Kenneth M. Young Dedication Award: Rick Wittmer
- 5 Years Service: Christina Lombardo
- 40 Years Service: Rick Wittmer
- 50 Years Service: Dave Buttermore
The shield plaque in the picture is a new tradition started to honor members that complete 50 years of active service. In addition to Dave Buttermore this year, past Assistant Chief Richard Voll was the last member to complete 50 years in 2011. Now that the plaque has been presented, we will be working with Dave and Richard to identify members that have passed away that also completed 50 years. Their names will be added to this plaque, which will be displayed at our main station.
It was a nice evening, and the leadership of the Wexford VFC can’t express enough to the residents of Pine Township what a special group of people we have serving the community.
