Life in the Year

And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years. ~ Abraham Lincoln 

Our local fire departments exist because of volunteers. These are not men and women who are doing a job when they don their gear and head to an emergency call. They are not paid, they are not looking for glory, they are not thrill seekers. They are people with a particular kind of character – the kind that runs toward danger when others are running away; the kind that is willing to sacrifice time and relative safety in order to help others; the kind that cares about the members of the community.

It is this character that we hope to capture in our Volunteer Firefighters Calendar for 2012, which is now being produced. Camara Photography is shooting the pictures, Rising Graphics is printing the calendars, and some of our local volunteers are *starring* each month. Purchase of the calendar not only benefits our fire departments financially, it is an easy way to say ‘Thank You’ to those who give so much. Keep your eyes open – they’re coming soon!
