Last evening your Woodlawn volunteers convened our November business meeting. With this meeting, the election of our company officers was held. Our positions of Treasurer and Recording Secretary remain unchanged filled by Carolyn Lease and Mike Hartman, respectively. James R. Kutz was elected by the membership to the position of Fire Chief for 2018.
This election brings a change in leadership at Woodlawn and the retirement, as Fire Chief, of Rusty Held. Chief Held has been Fire Chief since 1996 and a dedicated volunteer for the past 35 years. He has lead the department through thousands of fires, emergencies, and calls for service. We are all thankful for his service and will carry on everything he has brought to Woodlawn.
Woodlawn Fire Department is proud of this peaceful transition of power and hope to continue our high level of service to our community.
