Earlier this year, our “Member Spotlight – Inside the Fire Station” selectee was Robert Knoedler. Along with his wife Margaret, Robert joined the fire company in 1990. Of all our members, as a member of our “Fire Police” unit, Robert is one many in the public might recognize. Prior to a decline in health, he was frequently seen working traffic flow around our emergency incidents.
With deep, abiding sadness, the Chestertown VFC announces the passing of former Firefighter Joseph (Joe) Lawrence Weber. In late Fall, 1980, Joe joined the fire company through our Exploring program, which was a part of the Boy Scouts of America. It was a coed program tailored to introduce young people to a potential career as a firefighter. The fire company was a big part of Joe’s life and hugely important to him. Joe remained active with us for more then a decade, lasting into the early 1990’s.
