Himrod gives annual awards for service

HIMROD—The Himrod Fire Department honored their own during the annual celebration dinner held on Saturday, Jan. 15.
A Special Recognition Award was also presented during the evening event. Fire Chief Jared Webster presented the lone award given to a person outside the Himrod department. It was presented to Yates County Deputy Coordinator John Murphy. Webster said it was given, “For your inspirational dedication to the Yates County Fire Service.”
He added, “When a speed bump in our coordinator position came up. John filled in. When Glen (Miller) left he left us with a huge hole. John Murphy has made a huge effort to make sure we get another coordinator.”
The honor of Firefighter of the Year went to fire department President Stephen Acker. The Past Chiefs Award was presented to Carroll “Cubby” Graves for his devoted service to the Himrod Fire Department. Webster said, “I have known him in fire service for umpteen years. Don’t forget us, we won’t forget you.”  Graves is moving to Florida in March.
The Lucy Covert Award for dedicated service to the community of Himrod was presented to Deb Webster. Covert was a tireless volunteer for the fire department.
This year, three individuals received Chief’s Award. They were Brandon Parish, Lester Hoover, and Matthew Hoover. First Responders Award was presented to Maxine Masia. Eugene Nolt was honored for the most training hours: 156 hours during 2010. The Presidential Award for 2010 was presented to Leon Ray Hoover.
Steve Webster received a pin from his son Jared for 40 years service to the department.
A Special Recognition Award was presented to D.B. Miles Insurance Agency and was accepted by agency representative Mark Kendall. D.B. Miles has donated two sets of commemorative coins each year for the annual event.  This year the coins were awarded to volunteers Diane Hansen and Peter Masia.
Members of the fire department Auxiliary were honored. Jeanine Anderson received a special award. Auxiliary member Marcel Sorce also received an award. Sorce is involved in everything and was described  as always there.
One of the most important department fundraisers is the 15  week club, a project Webster called, “Our bread and butter.” An award for their work on the project was given to Roger and Joyce McKamey.
