January 27, 2019 – On Saturday evening, members of Rose Tree Fire Company enjoyed a night off to attend our annual Awards and Installation Banquet at the Lamb Tavern. Special guests included some of our close mutual aid companies and local government officials.
During this event, the new 2019 officers were officially sworn into their positions and members were recognized for their participation throughout the year. Awards were presented to the Top Ten responders for the year as well as the Top Ten attendance for training sessions.
In addition to the enormous efforts that each member devotes throughout the year, we select one individual who exhibits outstanding performance and dedication to the organization. The recipient is chosen by nominations from peers.
This year, it was a tie! The 2018 Firefighter of the Year Award winners were Emilio Mendelsohn and Robert Famiglio. Congratulations Emilio and Bob! We thank you for all you do and the many volunteer hours you dedicate to your community.
Overall is was a fun evening socializing with active members of past and present. A good time was had by all. During this event, our neighboring mutual aid companies were available for any calls in the township (thank you guys!).
