WEFR Burns Mortgage

On December 14, 1975 at the West End Fire and Rescue Company’s annual Christmas Party and awards banquet the mortgage on their building was burnt. The company signed a $24,000 mortgage on the building in the fall of 1970. In October 1975 the final payment was made. Among the awards given at the banquet were: Herbert Cassisdy Jr., outstanding firefighter of the year; Galen Smith received the president’s award, and Steve Gabler received the chief’s award. The Ladies Auxiliary presented the men with a check for $1,000.
