Passing of Kevin L. Roe

Saturday, February 22, 2020
With deep sadness, the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company announces the passing of Past Member Kevin L. Roe. Kevin came into the company as a Fire Service Explorer in the early 1970's. Exploring is a Boy Scouts of America co-ed program. The Chestertown VFC hosted an Exploring program from the 1960's until just a few years ago. It's purpose as a B.S.A. program was to introduce young people to a potential career path, in our case, firefighting.

Donation of Pet Oxygen Masks Received

Monday, February 17, 2020
Recently, we received a Pet Oxygen Mask, donated by local Girl Scouts. Several years ago, Ms. Pat Bjorke's Daisy Troop 1142 worked with the Chesapeake Animal Welfare Society to purchase these masks, using the monies earned from selling Girl Scout Cookies. Through an unintended misstep, there was a delay in our actually receiving the masks. Daisy Troop 1142 has since promoted within the Girl Scouts and are now designated as Girl Scout Troop 110.
