Firefighter Rich Williamson stands at attention during the service.

Every year, after the Memorial Day Parade, the Orange Volunteer Fire Department members gather at the end of the Firefighter’s Memorial at the far end of the Town Green for a private, solemn service and honor the deceased Orange firefighters.

The Rev. Ann Ritonia started things off with a prayer, then Chief Charlie Gagel said a few words.

Selected firefighters read the names of the late department members, then a wreath was laid in front of the stone.
