Firemen to Honor Washington

Firemen to Honor Washington

A committee consisting of Chief James M. Duncan, Jr., of Alexandria, Va., and a local group, are making plans for the coming convention of the Virginia State Firemen’s Association and the annual convention of the Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association, both to be held in Alexandria, Va., August 10-12.

O. W. Dabney, Staunton, Va., is Secretary of the Virginia Association and C. L. Jacobs, Waynesboro, Pa., is Secretary of the Cumberland Association.

On one of the days, officers and members of the associations will make a pilgrimage to Mount Vernon to place a wreath on Washington’s Tomb, to honor him as a volunteer fireman.
