60th District Digest October 23, 2017

Posted in News

Attention all Fire Department Members in Halifax, Charlotte, Prince Edward Counties and Brookneal and Gladys.

I have decided to sponsor a Fireman of the Year Contest award this year!

Each fire department will pick from its membership one person who will be declared their "Member of the Year" based on their overall contributions to the department and that person will receive $100 from my campaign. Then, each Member of the Year will be eligible to win the overall Fireman of the Year for an additional $250 and other prizes! The overall winner will be picked by a committee based on a statement written by each club President as to why their Member should be considered the Fireman of the Year!
