Nature: 87th Annual Delaware Volunteer Firefighters’ Association Parade
Address: Dover, Delaware
On Saturday, September 17th, the Indian River and Memorial fire companies and their respective members jointly participated in the 87th Annual Delaware Volunteer Firefighters’ Association (DVFA) Parade to memorialize the tenure of the out-going presidential officer – William F. Tobin, Jr.
William F. (Bill) Tobin, Jr. currently is a member of the Memorial (Slaughter Beach) Fire Company (Station #89) and the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company (Station #80). Both organizations felt it was a fitting response to recognize the professional diligence and dedication of Bill’s tenure to jointly collaborate our efforts and march in the 87th Annual event.
Both organizations have not marched in the Annual DVFA Convention Parade in at least 25 years and were truly honored to participate and recognize the leadership qualities of their outgoing DVFA President – William F. Tobin, Jr.
Indian River’s 1968 Mack R-Model Pumper (Engine 80-3 retired) did win an award for 3rd Place Best Appearing Apparatus 1958 or older.
Illustrated herewith are various photographs to highlight this annual event.
