The Stony Creek Volunteer Fire Company honored several of its members — both firefighters and emergency medical responders — at its annual Old Timers' Night held April 26.
According to Capt. Peter LaGrasse, the Old Timers Night is the annual banquet of the Stony Creek Volunteer Fire Co. This year, the event was held at Molly’s Mason Jar restaurant in Lake Luzerne.
During the event, LaGrasse said he was proud of the department and the work they put in.
“It often happens that I am out of town when a call goes out,” he said. “I listen to the pager and I am thrilled that within three or six minutes Stony Creek is out on the calls. Time after time Stony Creek is out when called. For this I thank you, and the community of Stony Creek thanks you. Every member of the company makes this happen. This is a team effort.”
EMT awards were presented to Doreen Ryan (first place), Maura Mc Cann (second) and Nate Thomas (third).
Ambulance driver award winners included Rick Moses (first), Bill Gloffke (second) and John Thomas (third).
“I want to complement the winners of the EMT ambulance runs, our fellow firemen and squad members who staffed the ambulance the highest number of times last year, and the drivers who drove the ambulance the most often,” LaGrasse said.
Gloffke, McCann and Nate Thomas were unable to attend.
