JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my section I have photos from Joint Base Cape Cod, Lakeville and Mashpee. Mike Boynton and I took a trip on Thursday morning and met up with some great crews in all 3 departments. A very special thanks to the crews in Lakeville, FF White and the crews at Joint Base Cape Cod, and the crews in Mashpee for their help. It was nice meeting you all and your assistance was very much appreciated. 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.
