Westfield Fire Chiefs honor widows

Submitted Photo

As part of a tradition spanning many years the Past Chief’s Association of the Fire Department of Westfield conducted its annual delivery of Christmas poinsettias to the widows of deceased firefighters. The Christmas flower presentation is a small token of appreciation to the surviving spouse of the deceased firefighter that the sacrifices made by their firefighter will never be forgotten. Pictured from left to right preparing to make their deliveries are Past Chiefs William F. Bills, Bill Bills, Ed Kneer, Current Fire Chief Jerry Ruch, Randy Edwards, and Lyle Holland.
