Today was the 100th anniversary of the Bayhead Fire Department! The Point Pleasant Dive Teams truck was specifically requested for their celebration because it is an antique! Yes, this is true our 1985 truck was the third oldest there, right after Bayhead’s fire trucks.
Chet, Bob S, Gibby and a tag along Liz, met at the building at 1030 and prepared the truck for its departure. We cleaned it, and Chet spent some time detailing it, specifically where the truck needed some extra attention.
We arrived a few minutes to noon and watched as they dedicated two large granite monuments with the names of deceased members. Unfortunately, a few nights ago they were vandalized by being tipped over. However, this did not stop the celebration, their spirits were very high!
After the dedication, the Chief of Bayhead FD led all the invited towns’ fire trucks through Bayhead in a parade. There was food and drinks when we returned and we spent the remainder of the afternoon enjoying the company of many locals and firefighters. Congratulations to the Bayhead Fire Department on One Hundred Years of Service!
