Vol. Hose in The RCVFA 2023 Parade

Members of volunteer hose company #2 participated in the Rockland County Volunteer Firegihters' Association's fireman parade on September 10th, 2023. We were lucky enough to avoid the inclement weather during the march and had a blast marching through our very own town. This year's parade feels quite different for us because we are missing the late ex-chief, Frank DeGroat. In honor of him, we did two things this year to commemorate Frankie: 1. We created a banner of Frankie carried at the front of our marching line for the remembrance of the ex-chief.

2. We requested the Best Rescue Presentation be given by Mrs. DeGroat in Frankie's memory.

We hope everyone enjoyed our march.

We would like to give a shout-out to S.W. Johnson for hosting this year's parade, the officials of RCVFA for ensuring the smooth operation of the parade and the Town of Haverstraw/Village of West Haverstraw for their support.

We also would like to recognize our members and their family members for participating in everything related to the parade, without each and every one of you, the parade would not have happened the way it did. So thank you!
