Salisbury Fire Department Women's Auxiliary Visits!

We are excited to be hosting members of the Salisbury, North Carolina Fire Department Women's Auxiliary as they visit Charleston this weekend.  Our Team became associated with the SFD over two years ago when they lost two of their own in a tragic fire in a cabinet manufacturing business in Salisbury.  We have had the honor of visiting and working with their firefighters on several occasions and the ladies took us up on an invitation to visit us.  Tonight, we enjoyed dinner with them at Jestine's Kitchen across from Central Station in Charleston before taking them for a riding tour of downtown on Engine 11. Afterwards, they were treated to a tour of Central Station and a visit with the crews of Engine 102 and 103.  Special thanks to my wife, Marci-Jo and CFD Wives Club members Laura Haigler and Jennifer Happ for acting as tour guides,  to Captain Joe Johnston and CFD Retiree Richard Happ for volunteering to drive them around the City, and to the crews of Central Station for hosting them in their station. They will tour Charleston tomorrow before we take them on a ghost walk tomorrow night to cap off their visit.
