Town Hall, Maine, Organize

Issue 4 and Volume 101.

Town Hall, Maine, Organize Residents of the Mount Desert Village of Town Hall, a part of the town of BarHarbor, have formed a volunteer fire department and elected the following Officers: Lyle Smith, chief James Lawler, captain; Vernon Hunt, lieutenant; John Hamblen, secretary; and Lowell Lurvey, treasurer. It was near Town Hall that the recent $10 million fire, which swept a large part of the Island, started. The Bar Harbor Fire Department has always been handicapped in furnishing protection to the Village, because of its location, more than ten miles from their quarters. It is the plan of the volunteers to co-ordinate their efforts with the regular Bar Harbor Fire Department, headed by Fire Chief David A. Sleeper. Activities are being planned to raise funds for the purchase of equipment.
