• Combined efforts make Foam 161 parade a success

    On Sept. 10, I had the honor and privilege of serving as the parade coordinator for Foam 161, the fire truck that was severely damaged during the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon. The parade was meant to specifically honor the three firefighters who were there on that fateful day and to honor in general all of the emergency service workers in our county and surrounding counties who stand ready to risk their lives for others on a daily basis. The parade was a resounding success.
