Early Boots and LaddersDa

In another 'Interview' event the Society interviewed Dale Smith and Larry Arp about their early years on the Bennington Fire and Rescue Squads.  Both joined in the early 1960's and combined provided the Bennington Community more than 75 years of volunteer service.  Questions included 'why' they joined; some of the worst and best calls; and advice they would give those thinking about serving.  The central theme was that people need to volunteer.

About 40 people attended to listen to early stories and events by these two renown Community volunteers.  Refreshments and drinks were served. (Who brought those delicious brownies?).  The section was video taped for posterity.
