More than 80 fifth graders from Boardman Center Intermediate's Maroon Team made a special donation at the new Fire Station 71 on Patriot Day. Students and Staff collected $150 to go toward building a safety services memorial. The township hopes to break ground on the memorial in Spring, 2019.
The students presented the check to Fire Chief Mark Pitzer, then took a tour of the new station. The tour was interupted by a real fire call, so students got a glimpse into a firefighter's life. Teachers involved with this project include Mrs. Tomcsanyi, Mrs. Ritter, Miss DeAngelo, Mrs. Shirilla and Mrs. Cretella.
