last Monday night at the Com
munity House at Fowlers Mills
to form a new Munson Volun
teer Fire Department, through
the proceedure of signing up 52
members. Frank Carey, presid
ing chairman, reviewed the act-
Township Fire Departments. Af
ter introducing Mr. Wanamaker
and Mr. Danford of Bainbridge
gath-! and Messrs. Curtis, Dryer,
Schroeder, Blaske and Kelsey
of Russell, Mr. Cary spoke of
the very friendly co-operation
extended by these two depart
ments. A brief history of Rus
sell’s formation and operation
was given since their problems
are so similar to those of Mun
son. Community friendships and
unity and particularly mutual
aid between volunteer fire de
partments of neighboring town
ships was stressed by the “Visit
ing Firemen.” Emphasis was
laid on the feeling of security
in knowning that there is a
standby volunteer department in
neighboring townships while out
on a call. This is worth any
effort in forming a new depart
ment. For instance .while six
men attended this meeting, away
from their^jwn departments, the
sheriff’s car stood by to receive
any fire calls from their town
ships over the radio. Mr. Cary
then announced that with the
obvious approval of the people
of Munson and the signatures of
95 percent of the men present,
the volunteer fire department of
Munson-Non-Profit and Incor
porated—was formed, and that
these members would meet with
in two weeks to elect their of
ficers and effect their Constitu
tion. The members, first
