The DFD was invited to participate and help the Thorndale Fire Co. celebrate their 75th Anniversary today. The volunteers at Thorndale have been providing professional service to Caln Township and neighboring communities and provides the Downingtown Fire Dept. Mutual Aid service during this entire time.
Fire Chief John Cordisco and President Miles “Mick” Arnold welcomed all of the guests and neighboring fire companies to the ceremony and introduced the various dignitaries. A brief history of the fire company was read by the Chief and the officers of the company were recognized along with the committee that organized the joyful event.
Following the officer introductions, the members of the company who had 15 years or more of service in the company were recognized. Past Chief’s David Aberts, Donald Taylor and Jim Rice were recognized for being part of the company’s history bringing them to where they are today.
The evening concluded with a buffet dinner with members and neighbors getting together to socialize and enjoy the evening.
The officers and members of the Alert Fire Co. No. 1 would like to congratulate Thorndale Fire Co. on their 75th Anniversary and wish them many more prosperous years of service.
