This Day in History: 1945-03-07
The Fardale Fire Department met at Dick Akin’s garage. The most important item of business was the second reading of the bylaws and a petition drive to have the company accepted as an independent company by the Township. The final steps were about to be taken to incorporate the group. 1945’s standing committees were also appointed and orders confirmed for additional Indian pumps and brooms to fight brush and forest fires. Harry Stenner was the lucky winner of the “dark horse” prize, whatever that was.
