Every year, members of the Orange Volunteer Fire Department gather on the town green after the Memorial Day Parade and honor the men who served in the department and have since passed away.

The only thing that was different this year is that the parade was canceled due to rain. But, as we all know the OVFD is on duty 24/7/365 and a little drizzle won’t stop them from carrying out a mission.

A smaller that usual group of firefighters made its way to the firefighter’s memorial at the far end of the green following the Memorial Day Ceremony inside the High Plains Community Center.

Under the command of new Fire Chief Vaughan Dumas, they all stood quietly and listened as Dumas and Deputy Chief Charles Sherwood read the names of the late members.

The men placed a wreath at the memorial stone, then returned to Station 1 on Orange Center Road.
