To the Times of Ti:
Vacations and illnesses made for light attendance at the March meeting, but it did not prevent our recognizing the successes that occurred in all the events in which we were involved during the Beste Scholarship Weekend, crowned by the Polar Bear Plunge and followed by another successful Chili Bake Off.
Our leaders are now working on the many care and maintenance issues that will move us from winter into spring and then summer. As soon as weather allows you will see hoses being tested at the town park, and our fire/rescue boat should be in the water as soon as the north basin is free of ice.
Two issues that are critical to any volunteer fire department are manpower and financial support. The Hague Volunteer Fire Department always welcomes potential new members at any level. Drivers and EMTs are particularly needed at this time. See any member or come to a meeting on the first Monday of any month if you would like to check us out. Our financial needs have been spelled out many times in the past. If you did not have a chance to respond to our year end appeal, perhaps the beginning of the year would be a good time. Your gift would not go unappreciated.
Early boaters remember, if your craft is under 20 feet, all on board must wear certified PFDs.
