JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week I have a few photos from the Stoneham Fire Explorer Program. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.





Congratulations to Stoneham Fire Explorer Josef Holmes on being promoted to Explorer Lieutenant and Explorer Lieutenent Jen Galla on being promoted to Explorer Captain (and before you ask, no she doesn't out rank me, ha ha.)
