On Saturday, September 10th; the Beukendaal Volunteer Fire Department held the official opening ceremony for our new building. First, we took a moment acknowledge the service of one of our longest serving members of our department, Willard Bailey. Willard has served our department for 60 years, holding high positions such as Chief, Fire Commissioner, and Station Keeper. Many groups and organizations thanked Willard for his service and Assemblyman Jim Tedisco personally congratulated Willard on his retirement. Then in full fire department fashion, our new building was crissoned with wet down provided by neighboring departments. Thank you everyone who attended this important day for our department.
