Putting Out Fires: Volunteer Firefighters of Hampton

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Volunteer firefighting units are, and have been, social centers of community in their areas. Citizens learn from each other, exchange news and ideas, and bond in caring for the community. Former Hampton mayor and councilmember Ross Kearney will lead a roundtable discussion among volunteer fire fighters from the consolidated Hampton area including Hampton Company, Buckroe Company, Wythe Company, Phoebus Company and Fox Hill Company. Join us in sharing their stories and memories, and, perhaps even a tall tale or two! Bring a bag lunch—we’ll have free dessert for you!
