From left are Eagle bay Fire Chief Shane Beach, Dave Peterson, and Department President Pete Widish.
Eagle Bay Volunteer Hose Co. personnel would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Dave Peterson for their recent donation to the fire department.
On New Year’s Eve, Dave and his wife were unfortunate to have suffered a structure fire at their residence in Eagle Bay.
Even with a quick response and an all-out effort by Eagle Bay and surrounding departments, they lost everything in the fire.
Nevertheless, to show their appreciation for the firefighter’s efforts, they were generous enough to make a $10,000 donation to the Eagle Bay Fire Dept.
This donation has been put into the Eagle Bay Fire Boat Fund, and hopefully by the spring of 2012 there will be a fire boat on the Fulton Chain to help serve all of the surrounding communities.
The Eagle Bay Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary will host an Ice Cream Social at the Fire Hall on Route 28 on Sunday, August 21 from 4 to 6 p.m.
This new event is sponsored by Twisters of Eagle Bay. All are invited to stop by and enjoy ice cream with family, friends and neighbors.
All proceeds will benefit the programs of the Eagle Bay Fire Ladies Auxiliary.
A public memorial service for Anne LaBastille, author, photographer and Adirondack guide, will take place Saturday and Sunday, August 20 and 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the shoreline of Twitchell Lake. LaBastille passed away July 1, 2011 in Plattsburgh, NY.
Due to an anticipated large crowd, private cars will not be permitted on site as there is not enough room to accommodate them.
