STREAMVIEW HELPS 58 AGAIN

Our friends in the Streamview neighborhood off Allentown Rd recently helped out the 58 house again. Carrie Dager of the neighborhood had found out that the TV in the firehouse meeting room/lounge was no longer working properly. There was no money in the budget to replace the TV this year due to other recent projects. Without our knowledge, Carrie and her generous neighborhood took it upon themselves to take up a neighborhood collection and raised just over $1100 for 58's to purchase a new TV. Mrs Dager presented the money to the 58 house at their business meeting in September. The TV along with a sound bar was purchased recently and installed at the firehouse. The TV serves two purposes; as a training TV when we hold classes and also as entertainment for when members are just relaxing, which in turn keeps members in house for quicker response to calls. Thank you again STREAMVIEW!!!!
