OCFD holds recertification training

The fire department shared some awesome photos from its SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) training last week. Although it makes sense, the lack of the “Underwater” letter makes the word look weird. Still, thanks to the OCFD for making certain they’re ready and able to come to the rescue.

We had a great SCBA recert this past Saturday! The weather wasn’t the best but we certainly were! Photo Courtesy: Firefighter Dave Coleman

Berlin’s art stroll is tonight

Come stroll with us tomorrow night! 2nd Friday Stroll

 Robert Lewis HeronOf particular interest tonight will be the big opening at the Patrick Henry Art Gallery and the book signing at Salt Water Media featuring Scottish author Robert Lewis Heron. Heron is an architect and accomplished artist living in Maryland. His unique voice for story telling captivates through his creativity in twisting and tormenting the reader’s imagination. By sprinkling a dry sense of humor throughout his writing, he makes the harshness a wee bit more palatable. Expect the unexpected on entering his world of woe and wonderment.

Classifieds (kind of)
