Johnson Fire Department Auxiliary Wins Top Prize
The Johnson Fire Department Auxiliary was recently awarded the First Place prize of $500.00 for their "Never Forget" float which appeared in the annual Vermont State Firefighter Association Convention parade. The theme for this year's parade, held in Newport, was pride in our firefighters and our homeland and featured fire trucks and apparatus from all over the state as well as marching bands and flag corps. The "Never Forget" float depicted the scene from
Ground Zero on 9/11 with a flag at half-mast and three firefighters standing along side it. Also present were a doctor, clergy person, police officer and an EMT professional to represent some of the people that gave so much during that difficult time. The float also featured the Statue of Liberty as a reminder to all to remain prideful of our country.
The JFD Auxiliary is a group of volunteers dedicated to sup porting the Johnson Fire Department and our community.
