Recently James “Jim” Douglas was selected as our “Inside the Fire Station – Member Spotlight” profile. Jim officially joined us in 1996, although he had been helping for several years previous. Jim is retired from the maintenance department at Washington College, where he worked for many years. There, he had been employed as a carpenter. Jim is a Vietnam Veteran, having served honorably in-country from 1969 – 1971. After processing out, he took a year off and by his own words…. Did nothing but “relax”. Jim ended up joining the Delaware Army National Guard, serving honorably for many years. He retired from the Delaware ANG as a Staff Sergeant in 1995. In his leisure time, Jim relaxes by engaging in woodworking projects of all kinds. His woodworking shop is to be admired. He has been known to help friends and family with home improvement projects.


Inside the Station - Member Spotlight

Recently, Ms. Ada Joyner was selected as the member to be spotlighted. Miss Ada is an Associate Member, having joined the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company through the Auxiliary in 1989. Since that time, she has been extremely active on the administrative side of our operation. As with every volunteer / community service organization, there are people that can always be counted on. In that respect, Miss Ada is one of our mainstays. Over the years, her attendance record at fund raisers, and other activities in support of our firefighting / emergency response activities, is nearly 100%. Her dedication and work ethic is a force to be reckoned. This writer can remember few activities where she wasn’t in attendance. Her good-natured, relaxed manner makes her easy to work with and fun to be around.
