By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record – While the Lennoxville fire station located at 10 Rue Depot in Lennoxville recently closed its doors, The Lennoxville Volunteer Firefighters Association, on the other hand, has not. The group hopes to continue to support the community in any way it can. The Record recently sat down with Gerry McNab, President of the Lennoxville Volunteer Firefighters Association, and former president and volunteer firefighter George Beaulieu to discuss the role the association played in the community and what the future holds. The Lennoxville Volunteer Firefighters Association Inc. was founded in 1960 and from the get go their mandate was to support the community and to serve and protect the residents of Lennoxville. In order to do that, they had to come with ways to raise money for equipment that was needed, since the town’s contribution was limited. As Beaulieu recalled, “I remember in 1965, we went and stood outside stores with little firemen made from plastic and asked people going into the stores to donate.” See full story in the Wednesday, June 5 edition of The Record.
