VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE JENKINSVILLE-MONTICELLO-HOREB FIRE DEPARTMENT, UPON THE CLOSING OF ITS ORIGINAL STATION AFTER THIRTY-TWO YEARS OF SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY, AND TO CONGRATULATE THE MEMBERS OF THE DEPARTMENT AS THEY MOVE TO THEIR NEW LOCATION.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate are grateful that the firefighters of the Jenkinsville-Monticello-Horeb Fire Department have selflessly performed their services in the Jenkinsville community for thirty-two years; and
Whereas, under the leadership of the fire department's board of directors President Odell Baten and the other board members, old gas trucks were purchased and converted into fire trucks to enable the Jenkinsville-Monticello-Horeb Fire Department to begin service in the community; and
Whereas, the trucks were originally garaged in the yard of the first fire chief, Reverend Thomas E. Feaster, until the current building was acquired; and
Whereas, under the leadership of long-time fire department board President, the late Lindberg Rabb, volunteers went from house to house collecting twenty dollars a home to help purchase a new fire truck that the firefighters dubbed "Big J"; and
Whereas, the members of the Jenkinsville-Monticello-Horeb Fire Department have contributed their skills and their heart for service in order to save lives, protect property, and help the people of the community in and around Jenkinsville; and
Whereas, the Jenkinsville-Monticello-Horeb Fire Department will close its station and move to its new location almost a mile from the present site where it will share facilities with the Sheriff's Office and the emergency-medical responders. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize and honor the Jenkinsville-Monticello-Horeb Fire Department, upon the closing of its original station after thirty-two years of service in the community, and congratulate the members of the department as they move to their new location.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to the Jenkinsville-Monticello-Horeb Fire Department.
