Good and Welfare March 31, 2010

Today is a bittersweet day for Chief Palmer: it's his last day of work before retirement. Chief, we wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Thank you for your service to our nation (Vietnam) and to our community. You've given more than your share of blood and sweat. After 38 years and 19 days in Willimantic, it's time for you to play golf, go fishing, attend to your health, and--of course--start the honey-do list!

Yesterday, Chief Palmer received a personal call from Congressman Courtney, wishing him the best in his retirement. Wow!

We'll post more about his career accomplishments, in the days to come.


Time to brag about two of our firefighters:

Holly Swiney just returned from a humanitarian trip to Haiti. Rather than spend her vacation at some tropical paradise, she went to Haiti to assist in the relief effort.

Mike Bergeron recently started donating some of his time to the Mystic Aquarium, where he's serving as a diver. He'll be doing everything from cleaning tanks to interacting with tourists through the glass viewing areas (in the tanks).

Many of our members support various causes throughout the year; and, they don't brag about I find out secondhand. We're quite proud of all of them.
