The good thing is, all of Ed's training and experience will not go to waste... as he has already joined the fire department here in Acton. "Sadly" he will be "on the bottom of the ladder", but that's ok.. I have a feeling it won't be long before the members here begin to "take advantage" of him....
Along with the fire department, Ed was also on the Board of Trustee's with the Water Department. This was another position that he had to stepped down from.
Last fall, as a gift of appreciation, the water department gave Ed a fire hydrant!!! (what better gift from the water department to a fireman!!!) It's a neat thing, and the guys had it made into a fountain!! with a plaque that states the years he served.
We plan to have a nice garden where his hydrant can be shown off!!!
I have no doubt that by next year, he will find some place to "be" in the government of Acton!!! My Ed is "not one to be sitting around", he has an excellent sense of business and likes to be a part of his community..
and in my opinion... they won't find anyone better!!!
