On Saturday evening, the Lake Harmony Fire Company held it's annual holiday party. The party was held at the Galleria this year, which was very nice. Over 40 people were in attendance, and it seemed like everyone had a great time. President Lou Montanaro was given a plaque for his dedicated service to the company. Lou stepped down as president, and has assumed the position of Vice President. Stan Costro was also given a plaque for his role as the Vice President. Both men have helped the company come a long way in a very short time period - THANKS to both of you. Fire Police member John Creegan was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Saturday night - congratulations John.

On Friday, January 16, 2015, 15 volunteers braved the early
morning cold to help stuff envelopes for our annual Lake Harmony Volunteer Fire
Company membership drive. The funds received help to offset the increasing cost
of operating a volunteer fire company such as replacement equipment, safety
gear, fuel and building maintenance just to name a few. We would like to
express our gratitude to these individuals because without their help, we could
not serve the community.
