JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

I hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving this year. Just one thing from me this week, a reminder about the 2022 Holiday Raffle. One week to go so make sure you enter to win the Northeast Firenews swag items. It's free. And once again, Northeast Firenews now has a Twitter account. The link is NE FIRENEWS TWITTER. 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.





To end the 25th anniversary year, I am holding a holiday raffle. There will be 5 winners and each winner will receive a Northeast Firenews classic challenge coin, Northeast Firenews 25th anniversary challenge coin, Northeast Firenews keychain, 2 Northeast Firenews 25th anniversary pens, Northeast Firenews vinyl sticker and a myster challenge coin.
